Avalanche Lake Ooty Address: 28 kms from Ooty, The Nilgiris, Ooty, Tamil Nadu, 643001, India
Avalanche Lake Ooty makes the perfect setting for a family, adventure package. If you are wondering how the lake landed with such a name, it is a misnomer because it was formed by a huge landslide and not an avalanche. You find large varieties of flowers, like magnolias and rhododendrons blooming on all sides of the lake. If you are interested in spending the night there, take a tent with you as you have provisions for pitching tents there. The lake is available for fishing and nearby the lake itself you have a trout hatchery, from where you can get fishing rods and other essentials you require.
The mountains surrounding the avalanche lake are wonderful trekking spots and you can do a little bit of exploration of your own. But do take the necessary precautions before you venture out into deep forests. The best time to visit the lake would be just after the monsoon when all the surrounding land will be blooming with flowers. Be sure to take warm clothes while going there as the climate is bound to get chilly and early morning dew is also very high. If you have trekking in your mind do take the proper gear as if you are going after the monsoons there is a high probability of leeches being present all through the way. A perfect hang out during the daytime, you can set up a camp site and cook the fish you caught and then enjoy the night in the night in the tent with your family. What more do you need?
