About Karlad Lake

99%
voted as clean

Karlad Lake is located in Thariode, which is around 16 km away from Kalpetta. This is the second largest freshwater lake in the state, which is quite popular among nature enthusiasts for its peaceful environs.

The 7 acres land surrounding this lake is a popular picnic spot, where boating can also be done. This lake is surrounded by dense bamboo groves that are perfect trekking trails for reaching the Pallikkunnu Church.

Banasura Sagar Dam is situated around 3 km away from the Karlad Lake. There is a Karlad Tourism Centre at this place which comprises a facilitation centre, dormitories, a heritage village and a restaurant.

"Must visit place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
First of all it is ranked 17th now. This place should come rank 4 or 5. It is newly rebuild and good to visit. Rope driving and boating in Lake is the best attraction. New Swiss Cottage is getting ready by mid of June or July. All cottages are lake facing. I will suggest all tourists to visit this place and make their travel memorable.

"Karlad Lake - Beautiful Lake"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 9, 2015
This visit to this lake on the way from Vythiri was not there in our itinerary but we heard about Karlad Lake from a resort staff and went there just to have a look. But we were surprised to see such a beautiful lake where we could relax, the water was still with Lilies and Lotus floating on the sides. Since the place was not crowded, we sat by the side watching and relaxing with the gentle breeze and sight of the Bamboo Groves, few people engaged in boating etc gave us an exceptional feeling. A small food outlet and dormitory is there for refreshment.

Don't waste your time in Karlad lake. Very small lake, not really an attraction. Best if you skip the place.

"Not good as of now"

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted Sep 27, 2013
This is a pond and boating here, very boring. Nothing here to see and thrill. If you visit, it would be waste of time.
