beautiful Lake
Jul. 2021
Pookode lake offers various activities like boating etc.
It was wonderful water Lillies with purple hues. It is a large lake and has a beautiful view. It has easy access and good for family trips as well. Pookode lake is near Vythri, one of the most beautiful locations in God's own country. You will get wonderful resorts to stay and enjoy the nearby pookode lake.

Crowded place, offers boating
Dec. 2019
Place is quite crowded with tourists. Boating is an option. Opt for the two seater paddle boat and you can get one sooner. The jackfruit ice cream available at the snack bar is great - give it a try.

Surrounded by 7 hills this lake is very good for boating you get a speed boat and a rowing boat with a person to row for Rs 500 boats have a roof so anytime between 10 to 5 pm it is a good time to visit

One can also hire a cycle to go around the lake the rent is Rs 50 for 20 mins

LOSES ITS NATURAL CHARM DUE TO THE FACILITIES WHICH SUPPOSEDLY ATTRACT TOURISTS
Jan. 2020
Pookode Lake is a scenic freshwater lake close to the boundary of the Wayanad and Calicut districts in Wayanad, Kerala. It has become a major tourist destination and has been promoted greatly by the Tourism Development Council of Wayanad District.
We visited this lake on our way from Wayanad to Calicut during our recent Kerala trip. Pookode is a natural freshwater lake nestling amid evergreen forests and mountain slopes at an altitude of 770 m above sea level. Kabini River originates here. The lake is supposed to resemble the shape of the map of India from the air but I couldn't make out the same when I visited the lake.
There is a species of cyprinid fish known to occur only in Pookode Lake.
The lake has boating facilities for the tourists and there are a few shops for eatables and a handicraft shop where a lot of local stuff can be procurred.
The lake is beautiful, but the facilities made to attract tourists has to a great extent spoilt the natural charm of the lake. The place has become overcrowded and unmanageable.

Must visit place in Wayanad
Jan. 2020 • Family
Enjoy a boat ride here. Both, self-pedalling as well as assisted boats are available.
Also, enjoy about 2km walk around the lake.
A very calm and peaceful place to spend some leisure time.

Natural Exotic lake to visit in Wayanad. Paddle and Row boating available and is very Safe and fun. Pookod lake is very Calm Place and has beautiful scenic views and an aquarium is also present. Those who don’t like Boating can take a cycle ride to go all around the lake.

Nothing much just a time pass if you have ample time
Dec. 2019
Staff are harsh they dont speak any other language other than Malayalam. They shout upon tourist for asking questions.
Life jackets are placed in the boats but not of good quality. Not even sure if they have a rescue team with proper motor boats incase of emergency.

Parking is a big problem you have to go almost 1.5 kms to park your vehicle and walk all the way back to the lake. Parking is completely filled with dust. Parking fees is been charged but no properly parking facility. They force you to park vehicle close of other cars. IT might damage while opening doors.
