Beautiful place to visit. I must say if you are traveling to ooty then you must visit Avalanche lake. But jungle safari is not worthy. Overall beutiful calming natural beauty.

This secluded place in Ooty, was the best experience we had in the trip. We didn't want to come back from here. The drive to the lake and s scenic from Ooty, the last few stretches are narrow and tough. From the parking area one needs to walk for 10 mins, along the stream of shallow waters at first. Then, we witnessed an absolutely mesmerizing view of Lake, mountains, sunlight and greenary. The place was not crowded at all. It is aloof from any hustle and noise that you would experience at say Ooty lake or Doddabetta peak. The serene peaceful environment makes it that much more enjoyable. Must visit. I didn't want to come back.

It is one of the less touristy things you can do in Ooty. The lake is nice and the safari to the jungle is also nice though short and not very eventful in terms of animal sightings. place is very clean and green. Place seems less crowded probably because its ~ 20 km away from city center. On the way back to city, one can sight the Emerald lake as well which too is scenic.

Lake was totally dry but there was a beautiful rivulet flowing thro' the middle of it and all had a great time in the rivulet...It was like being transported to the states of HP or UK where you'll find small flowing rivulets.

We visited here in June and did not find any water. Everyone came here for the beautiful view and Instagram worthy pics. But there was no water. The view is good but the water was missing. Maybe in the rainy season, the water level will be up and it might be a nice view. The route to Avalanche lake has so many scenic views that even when water was not in the lake, we didn't regret going there.

We had not heard about Avalanche lake during any of our previous trips to Ooty. We went there based on a recommendation and it was a very pleasant surprise. It is a roughly 30kms drive (each way) from Ooty and the road is mostly good (the last 1km is being re-laid and can get a bit narrow). The lake has multiple viewing spots and each of them are quite beautiful. It is mostly secluded and sees a few tourists which is a rarity when compared to the hustle and bustle of Ooty town.
