Beautiful place and picnic spot. You can see the western Ghats hills. Bird watching is good here as you can see many birds like peacock, cranes, kingfishers etc. Swimming is allowed on certain days. A good place for picnic and enjoy.

It is a beautiful serene spot. Very picturesque and a great place to relax or even walk. It is a large lake fed by the rains. Regretted not taking a picnic basket.

Early morning or late afternoons are best for this walk; its a waterfowl paradise with kingfishers, herons, stalks, ibis, cormorants and ducks in abundance. The surrounding hills are majestic and there are coconut and mango plantations and several temples to visit.

The lake is dependent on the monsoon and beautiful when full. It's a quiet spot with lots of wildlife to look for, especially birds.

Calm and peaceful. Far from the hustle bustle. Plenty of bird and other wildlife. It is possible to walk around the lake and climb up to a temple by the shore.
