Kodai Lake, or the Kodaikanal Lake, is a man-made lake in the heart of Kodaikanal. Shaped like a star, the picturesque lake is surrounded by the beautiful Palani Hills and is the most popular tourist attraction in Kodaikanal. Regular flower shows and boat fairs are organized to attract the tourists in summer. One can see tourists resting or clicking pictures along the 5 km pathway around the lake. The clean blue water surrounded by green is the perfect spot to laze or capture the beauty of nature. You could even hire a boat from the Boat Club and enjoy a scenic boat ride. Kodai by the Lake, A Sterling Holidays Resort offers luxury English-styled accommodation on the banks of the lovely Kodai Lake.
