Choose your day. We were there on Sunday and Monday and the contrast was very evident. On a Monday Morning, it was peaceful. Choose the type of boating you want to do and get to the correct starting point. You local guide / driver should be able to guide.

Recently they have promoted horse riding and cycling around the lake. It's a very good experience to cycle around in the breeze.

Kodaikanal lake is one of the major attractions in the hill station. We visited in November to have a feel of the climate. It was raining most of the day and there was heavy mist. But in the after noon the sun god made a darshan and we were lucky to have a boat ride. The two seater bicycle ride and horse riding made children happy. Dont forget to take photos n this location.

I felt that the Kodaikanal lake and it's surroundings are the best places in Kodaikanal. The views from the lake are good. You won't have to wait long for hiring a pedal boat. There is pony riding and cycling on payment at the close visinity of the entrance to boat house.

The universal favorite place to visit in Kodai is the lake and no wonder it is. For the couple who need to go on a tandem bicycle and the kids who would like a horse-back ride this place is everyone's favorite indeed. The roadside tea shops serve excelllent tea but try and avoid the sugary local chocolates there ain't much of a chocoate there. Do go for a morning run if you're the athlete will be 5K I think to complete the circle and you won't regret it. Boating is something everyone look forward to but the boat jetties close quite early we missed it.

The lake is situated near Bus Stand and one of the main tourist attractions of Kodaikanal. Boating is available at the lake and cycles are available for renting. I would recommend cycling around the lake. It costs 50 rupees for half an hour for cycling.
