A huge body of blue water surrounded by rust-colored hills, Upper Bhavani Lake offers an escape into the nature some 90 minutes from Ooty. Giant squirrels, jungle cats, wild dogs, and jackals live in the area, which gets more than its share of annual rainfall and remains dominated by wattle plantations and montane forests. Guesthouses provide overnight stays for visitors coming here to hike, walk, or photograph the lake's big dam.
