Was an ok experience with speed boat ride. The place is very crowded. The temperature here was higher than the hills and hence was humid and sweaty.

Didn't find this very interesting, the lake offers boating and there are shops around, but it's not really that big. There aren't that many options in yercaud so it's nice to book a slightly more expensive resort and just chill there if you're with friends

The only lake in Yercaud, it is always overcrowded with boating enthusiasts. The best part though is that one can take a 3 quarter round around the lake, which offers good view and cool breeze. The lake is photogenic, don't forget to take occasional pics....More

Go if you have spare time or need count. Not for someone who would check TripAdvisor for visiting spots.

Very crowded place. They charge you a deposit, hence it makes your exit difficult after ride. However, it is one of the prime attraction in Yercaud.

The only lake called Emerald is located in the heart of the city. Water is recycled other than for drinking purpose. Pedal boats and motor boats are deployed for tourists. Do visit it

Boating in the lake was real fun. It was good to see all the colourful flowers and also the deer park near the lake.
