About Horse and Bicycle Ride at Kodaikanal Lake

The Kodai Lake though an artificial one, is blessed with such natural beauty that it has become a major hub of activities in Kodaikanal. Nestled amid magnificent hill slopes, large rocks, cascading waterfalls and fruit orchards, the surroundings of the lake are truly a testament to nature’s bounty. As a result, cycling and horse riding are two very popular activities among tourists here. People enjoy the double cycle ride that covers the entire perimeter of the lake, watching the clouds appear and disappear above. Horse riding adjacent to the lake has its own joys, amidst the sweet beauty of rare flowers and fruits found here. Both cycles and horses are available on an hourly basis for a fixed tariff.

Historical Context: Kodaikanal Lake is an artificial lake created in 1863 with a great contribution from Sir Vere Henry Levinge, the then collector of Madurai. It is also known as Kodai Lake. Slowly, the lake became a landmark of great aesthetic value for the tourists, and people started various activities like boating, horse riding, and bicycle riding here.
