Ooty House Boat

Ooty Lake has emerged as one of the foremost tourist attractions of Ooty in recent years. The Lake and the Boat House has been the major entertainment hub for the large number of tourists who flock to this beautiful hill station all throughout the year and particularly in the summer months.

This is an artificial lake that owes its construction to the first Collector of Ooty, John Sullivan. The original intention was to construct an irrigation tank but finally the lake was dredged out in the years 1823-1825. The lake has an irregular L shape and stretches for more than 2 km in length. The widthof the lake varies at regular intervals.

House Boat


You have wide variety to choose from as far as boating is concerned. There are motor boats, pedal boats and rowing boats. You need to pay a refundable deposit and get the tickets, after which you can enjoy the serene surroundings. There is a Boat House at the far end of the lake.

From as early as 8'o clock in the morning to 6'o clock in the evening boats are available for hire at this boat house. It?s a beautiful sight as you take a boat ride, overlooking the misty hill station in the icy waters. You will also spot a deer park as you ride along the waters. There is a restaurant adjacent to this Boat house. Hot snacks and beverages are available here.
