About Avalanche Lake

Located 28 km from Ooty, this naturally formed lake was composed in the year 1823 due to a massive landslide, and therefore named as the Avalanche Lake. Surrounded by a rolling landscape with blossoming flowers like magnolias, orchids, and rhododendron, this is an important tourist destination. One of the famous activities in the lake is trout fishing; there is also a trout hatchery near the lake where visitors can get fishing rods and other fishing accessories. Other tourist activities include rafting and trekking in Upper Bhavani within the dense forests and untouched wild habitats. The small waterfalls falling from the surrounding mountains creates a picture-perfect ambiance and surrounding woods are so thick that even sunlight cannot penetrate through them. The lake is situated in the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, and prior permission is needed from the forest office in Ooty before visiting this enchanting tourist destination.
