We went to Vythiri and took a couple of hours to visit Pookot Lake. It's about 5 kms off Vythiri. There's a parking lot about 100 mts from the lake entrance but people also park along the road. There is a nominal entrance fee. We went in February and the water level was quite low. There's a children's park at... More

An average place with a lake with boating options. Nothing special about the place. There is a fish spa and an aquarium (which has about only 10 fish tanks!! most of which are not correctly labled). Also a small exhibition of local handicrafts and souvenirs. Place was not greatly maintained and was very crowded even at mid-day. Parking is a... More

It is an average lake with average boating facilities. If you have not done boating and you are in the vicinity, you can go here else it is waste of time. Available boats are not adequate and lake is also not big.

This place is very calm and cold as compared to Dam. You can enjoy pedal boat, fish spa, aquarium, food(although I don't like Kerala food), shopping, kids park and all. You can spend 3-4 hours at this place and you'll be satisfied. This place is much better then the Bansura Sagar Dam, that is just total waste of time. Pookot... More

Its a big lake....But u have to drive a lot to reach there...After u enter the main gate there are few snacks shops and very small aquarium...U can do boating....Good scenic view... Remind me of Naini lake of nainital ..... Other than boating no good activities...U can go to this place if u have some extra time in Wayanad...

Nothing great about this place. Keralites overcrowd the place as if there are no other lakes with boating in kerala.

Went to this place on our way to other places. The lake is situated about 5-10 min from the main entrance to wayanad. Pretty much decent place just to stroll around they do have boats in the premises. The lake is covered with pink tiny flowers which makes it look like a pink blanket covered on top of the lake....

When our driver mentioned this place to us, we thought it would be just another lake with boating. We were not very enthusiastic about it but decided to go as my son was keen on boating. the lake has some options with regard to the kind of boats one would like to use. there are 7 seaters, 4 seaters, motor...
