Kodai Lake is a quiet lake which is best experienced away from the main area. Hire cycles or take a pony ride. Boat rides are available for anything between Rs 100 and 250 per person for 30-min cruises, depending on the type of boat (single/ double pedal/ row). Walking around the lake is a pleasant experience. The road is flat beneath your heels, and clean. If you want to rest, there are seats incongruously facing away from the lake! You can also stop for steaming masala tea or home-made chocolates at one of the stalls.
