Create an itinerary including Lake View Point
Enjoy a panorama of Kodaikanal Lake at Lake View Point, an observation station overseeing the lake and parts of the city. Lush green slopes of the surrounding hills and valleys with misty mountain peaks in the background provide a scenic view of the area. Use telescopes on the spot to get a closer view of the star-shaped lake in the distance. Get a masala tea, or some souvenirs and handicrafts from stands opposite the station and go directly to the lake. Plan a trip to Kodaikanal easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Beautiful view, but it is just a view. We have visited so many views that I have lost track only go and see one or 2 views. otherwise it isn't worth your time.

  • The spot gives a wholistic aerial view of Kodaikanal lake and surrounding settlements, nothing much at this place. There are few shops nearby selling souvenirs and food. The food spot was really crowded, probably yummy, didn’t try it though. Travelling couple of kilometres uphill just for this view is worthy or not worthy depends on individual’s preference.
  • Offering a bird’s eye view of the jewel of Kodaikanal, the Kodai Lake, the Upper Lake View Point was a short stop on my itinerary. The place tends to get overcrowded easily by selfie clicking tourists.
