A popular geographic landmark in the hub of the Kodaikanal settlement is the Kodaikanal Lake. You can enjoy a horse ride round the lake while indulging in some balloon shooting. Once a marshy lake, it is now a major tourist attraction. The green valleys surrounding the crystal clear blue waters is a beautiful sight.
The lake is well known for the renowned Kurinji flower which blooms every 12 years. Visited by countless tourists every year, the star shaped lake complements the emerald green beauty of the rolling hills. This lake is a haven for all to escape the heat of the tropical summers. This is the nerve centre of the town where you can see fitness buffs and honeymooners in plenty. A trip to Kodaikanal is incomplete without a visit to the Kodai Lake.
