Average place to get a top view of the lake. Nothing much to do here apart from the view point. Few picture clicks probably.

Nice view of the valley around the Kodai Lake. Though it was shrouded in dense cloud as the aftermath of the Gaja cyclone, we did get a few beautiful glimpses!

This point which is on top of the hill gives us a good view of the lake below. One can take in the scenic views amidst the greenery all around

We began with Upper Lake Viewpoint which is basically an area atop a mountain and it overlooks the Kodaikanal Lake in a distance. With a splendid view and the cold air brushing against your face, the journey to the stop will be exhilarating.

You can see the lake from this view point but there should be a small garden or chairs for people to relax and enjoy the view, which was lacking.

We enjoyed the sights and views of the lake from this point. The sight of the lake waters and the greenery in the hills was a sight to behold. The misty weather added to the charm of the place
