Kodai Lake


The Kodai Lake has immensely contributed to the beauty and attraction of the picturesque hill station of Kodaikanal.

Located at a distance of 3 Kilometers from the main bus stand of the city, the Kodai Lake falls at the geographical location of 10°14' North Latitude and 77°28 East Longitude. Much of its present glamor owes to Vera Levinge.

He transformed the marshy lakeside into a spectacular lake by strengthening its banks and bringing beautiful boats from Tuticorin.

Situated at an altitude of 2285 Meters, the Kodai Lake of Kodaikanal has a star like shape if seen from a height. The Kodai Lake covers an area of almost 60 acres.

One can trek or drive along the beautiful lake, which is bordered by a well maintained road.

The Kodai Lake is a hot bed of fun and leisure activities like boating, and fishing. One can enjoy a horse ride in the shores of the lake or cycle around the lake.

One can just sit on the edge of the lake and relish the paradisaical view. Children will be extremely happy to enjoy the pony rides or just play around the greeneries.

Several wonderful hotels surround the lake. One can watch the beautiful scenery of the lake while sipping a cup of coffee in the balcony of his hotel. Standing by the lake and watching the sunset is an unforgettable experience.
