Amidst groves of fragrant Nilgiri trees with neatly manicured bushes along its shore, Ooty Lake is an artificially constructed lake whose foundations were laid in 1824. With breath-taking natural surroundings and the Ooty toy train running along its banks, calling Ooty Lake picturesque, would be an understatement. You must make it a point to visit this magnificent man-made wonder when you stay at any of a Club Mahindra resort in Ooty.
Originally constructed during the British Raj for fishing, Ooty Lake has transcended its purpose to become a cultural landmark. Cycling around the circumference of the lake at dusk or watching the sunrise at dawn is the best way to calm even the most stressed-out mind and slow time down, even if it is for the briefest of periods. Ooty Lake is the undisputed jewel in the crown of the Queen of Hill Stations.
The main attractions at Ooty Lake are boating where you can opt for motorboats, paddle boats or row boats. Or you could choose to cycle and horse-ride around its periphery. Ooty Lake is also the site of boat races and boat shows as part of the Ooty Summer Festival. The area around the lake is also a great place to shop for souvenirs such as shawls, handicrafts, and eucalyptus essential oil. There is also an amusement park for kids and a children’s garden along the shores, ensuring that there’s enough and more to do for the entire family. Visiting Ooty Lake is one of the most wholesome things to do in Ooty as a family.
