A majestic lake, with boats casting their lines through water and tourists filling the air with their joyous chit-chat. This artificial lake was created by John Sullivan, the first District Collector of Ooty in 1824. Tracing an area of nearly 65 acres, it’s one of the scenic spots to shake a paddle. Ride a boat into the dazzling blue water, within the proximity of observation points. It is a popular recreational spot. You can even hire a boatman who’ll row and show you around. A mini-garden and a toy train ride are other nearby attractions.
