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.

It inside the hills . From Ooty town around 21 km. Roads are narrow but way to there have a good nature scenery. At half a day we should spend there. There if not a mansoon we can play in water . There is a jeep safari also they charge 250 per head.
Visiting here vl b a good experience.

Very nice place. Although a little off-route and very less known, but its really beautiful and a must place to visit. The road which leads to Avalanche lake is very scenic, you get very nice view of Nilgiris and the destination is amazing. There is a small government canteen at the lake which serves delicious food and have decent variety available. It have an ample parking space to park your vehicle.

We weren't sure about visiting this place but let me tell you its just like heaven on earth. Very serene and unadulterated. Very less population at the spot. Though its a little far away from the city center but definitely worth the visit.

The lake is situated amongst forest area. The drive is very charming. The lake too is beautiful. There is an Avalanche river which leads to the Avalanche lake. You have to park your vehicle at forest check post. It is just half a kilometre walk to the lake. It is very scenic location as you move along the river and you have to pass through a small pine forest also. If you have half day to spare , you can definitely visit it. Post Covid they have stopped boating and night camping here.

Best beautiful place in ooty. Must visit this place.Because avalanche situated in the forest and the way is very beautiful and adventure. Forest officers won't allow private vehicle to forest.Only forest vehicle allowed.A wild life Safari trip in a covered van is a good option.

The Kings Cliff hotel told us that it was open . We drove and hour and it has been closed since August of 2019. At the time they told us that the park would be closed for at least 6 more months because of an avalanche that has closed the roads.

On the right hand side is Emerald lake and the one on the left is Avalanche lake in the Emerald Dam catchment area. You cant miss this when you visit Avalanche or Emerald.
