About Berijam Lake

A hidden gem of upper Palani Hills, Berijam Lake infuses a sense of calmness and peace in you. It is a scenic freshwater reservoir located 22 Km from Kodaikanal. It is spread across 59 acres approximately and is surrounded by dense forests. This lake is created by a dam and its water is pure & potable. It is also the reason behind sourcing the water to a small village of Periyakulum close to Kodaikanal. You get to see lotus flowers, colourful fishes along with various wildlife species like Bison, deer, snakes and panthers here. Poisonous mushrooms also grow around Berijam accompanied by many medicinal trees that are believed to induce hallucinogenic effects. To visit this attraction in Kodaikanal, you need to obtain prior permission from the forest department. One the way to this lake, you can stop at the Silent Valley View point that offers a splendid view of the valley and the lake.

Pro Tip: Take prior permission from the Forest Department before visiting the lake
