About Boating on Ooty Lake

Some say there’s no better feeling than to be floating on a body of water with clear blue skies above and green land at a distance. You can experience this first hand on the beautiful Ooty Lake nestled in Nilgiri Hills of Tamil Nadu. The boating facilities are offered by the Boat House adjoining the lake which also features a tiny amusement park, a garden, and a toy train. The lake is open for boating from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM; a range of boats to choose from – paddle boats, row boats and motor boats. The activity is not just great for couples, but also for families and groups. Take your time and enjoy a leisurely day out on the lake with thick groves of Eucalyptus trees and a railway line running along the shores. The lake itself forms a rough ‘L’ shape as it stretches on for 2.75 km. The lake was formed by water from mountain streams. It was mainly used for traveling and fishing. After it shrank, an artificial lake was constructed in 1824. In 1973, The Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation took over and opened it up to tourists.

Pro Tip: Activity fee will change depending upon the type of boat chosen.
