One of the most popular spots in Wayanad, the Pookot Lake lies amid lush green surroundings and leaves one mesmerised with its breathtaking beauty and tranquil setting. A freshwater lake, it offers a host of recreational opportunities to visitors, ranging from boating to aqua zorbing. The pristine lake is surrounded by picturesque mountain slopes and its shape bears an uncanny resemblance with the Indian map. The lake is also famed for its blue lotus flowers. It is a popular site for nature walks, as it shores are carpeted by colourful blooms and the nearby pathways are neatly lined with dense evergreen forests. Lying in close proximity to the lake, a children's park, a freshwater aquarium and a Handicraft Emporium make it a perfect place to visit with your family. Don't forget to buy local spices from the handicraft store before you leave. Nestled 3 km south of Vythiri town, the Pookot Lake is easily reachable from all parts of Wayanad.
