One must visit this place once is Sun is out and around 5 pm and as there would be thinner crowd and you could have a very long ride over the Lake by the boat ride.
Best thing a family could do is take cycle rides for all family members and once round would get you an overall view of the lake and you would really enjoy the ride. Though the cycle raid is chargeable for a nominal fee.
Street food are very handy over here. Hot corns and groundnuts are the best time pass at this place and they are quite tastier and yummy.

Kodaikanal Lake, a man-made lake, is located in the Kodaikanal city of Dindigul district, Tamil Nadu. Considered as one of the most popular geographic landmarks and tourist attractions, this lake is located at a distance of 3 km from the bus stand. Perched at an elevation of 2,285 m above sea level, this lake is star shaped.
Enclosing an area of around 60 acres, the lake has an average depth of 3 m. The lake was created in 1863 by Sir Vere Hentry Levinge, who was the collector of Madurai. He came to this place after his retirement and converted this marshy land with several streams of lake.
Tourists visiting this artificial lake can take a walk around this lake or can enjoy several activities such as cycle rides and horse rides. In addition, fishing can also be done at this lake; however tourists need to obtain permission from Inspector of Fisheries. Boating can also be enjoyed on this lake, for which boats are provided by Tamil Nadu Tourist Development Corporation and Kodaikanal Boat & Rowing Club.
