about avalanche lake

Avalanche Lake is a valley that's much more than just beautiful with rolling meadows, swaying flowers, slow trickling streams and marine life that comes, literally, kicking out of the waters. It lies at some 26 km from Ooty, and is a great draw for wanderers, loners and families alike.

Named after the landslide that happened in 1823, it has acres of magnolias spread out, making it a fairy land of sorts. You can go camping in the valley, with the quaint village at one side and the huge dam on one. You must also go fishing at the Trout Farm here, for there's plenty of catch there. Spend an hour or two, with your fishing rod spread out for some sheer fun. And if you are one of animal lovers, the view in Avalanche Lake itself is gorgeous enough. More so, with the rippling sound of the stream making for a background score.

We visited this place few months back.The forest is thick and dense but we didn't find much animal sighting. But a good place to experience nature beauty.
