About Pookode Lake in Wayanad

A lovely and serene place to spend some time, Pookode Lake is a marvelous tourist destination in Kalpetta, in Wayanad. Located nearly 15 kms from the city center, this freshwater lake is an amazing place and a much-loved spot for locals and tourists alike.

It is also the highest freshwater lake in the state. It is a great place for nature lovers and photographers, as well as for those who love to paint surreal looking landscapes. Bird watchers can also have a good time here, especially during migration season, since birds from nearby areas come over here to rest their wings before they take flight again.

There are a variety of fishes and other marine life in the lake, although fishing is prohibited here. Pethia pookodensis, a rare species of cyprinid fish, can be found only in the Pookode Lake. You are also sure to elusive blue lotus in the lake, and the lake is generally fully covered with these beauties when it is flowering season. Come over to this place and spend some time feeling at one with nature, and find your peace of mind.
