The Berijam lake can be visited with a government issued pass and they claim to have a daily limit. We outsourced the whole thing to the resort folks who arranged us a great local driver who was around 50 and he was amazing as he had the keys to give us the various viewpoints of the lake - different angles where there were no masses. Initially we went to the lake, walked till the dipping point and posed for photographs, there was crowds coming in, so we climbed the little hillock where Lord Murugan's deity was there. Then our driver took us to places on the side of the road where yearly campers stay. These camps were empty abutting the lake and it was beautiful from these camps - the views of the lake, the overlooking ranges and the colours of the water, and the sounds of nature. I would rate the trip as one of my best trips and compare it with the calmness I had experienced while trekking up to Gomukh. The driver taught my kids to make wild bouquets of wild plants, flowers and it was a lot of fun. The secret sauce of enjoying the trip is to hire a driver who is familiar with this place and request him to take you to those spots which are near to the road but isolated from public eye. These spots exist throughout the driveway from the entrance to end of the Berijam lake's roadway.
