About Berijam Lake in Kodaikanal

Berijam Lake is a serene reservoir, enveloped by nature’s beauty near Kodaikanal town in Dindigul district of Tamil Nadu. As the lake flows in the upper Palani hills, it offers views of the landscape around. Berijam Lake is part of a micro-watershed development project that was formed as the consequence of the construction of a dam with channeled outlets. This nature's unhindered beauty stands in the midst of a forest conservation area. The glistening azure waters of this liquid marvel presents it as a lovely place to visit for those in love with nature.

Berijam Lake in Kodaikanal is rich in flora and fauna and a flourishing ecological hotspot that hosts many species of animals, birds, plants, and fish. Bison, deer, panthers, Indian Elephant, Nilgiri Langur, and snakes are often spotted in this area. It is outlined by acacia and pine trees that make the surroundings fragrant and add a zest of evocative quality to it. Those looking forward to enjoying a stay here can count on Berijam forest guest house for a comfortable accommodation. However, prior permission is required for an overnight stay here.

The serene surroundings of the lake make it the perfect place for birdwatching, photography, and quiet reflection. In addition, the lake is a much-preferred picnic spot amongst locals and tourists alike. October to May are the best months of the year to have a great time at this lake. Keen adventures, also resort to Berijam Lake trekking for an exceptional experience while exploring its charm to the fullest. It is noteworthy that visitors are required to obtain formal Berijam Lake permission from the Forest Department to enjoy the beauty spread all around. The Fire tower, Silent Valley, Medicine Forest, and Lake View are other attractions around the lake.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      There is no coordination with travel agent to driver, the tour plan execution not happened as per package, but managed, the hotels also not as expected. Needs take care once we are in your place. We don't know nothing, we came here for enjoy and entertainment. The second day driver (Sagar-9611573806) excellent driving, covered all the places as much as he can. Hotel Mount n mist superb Coorg, ooty, coonoor really awesome places, especially for couples, the nature, gardens, trees, tea gardens, view points,water fall, enjoyed a lot, definitely every one should have this kind of tour(ooty) in their lifetime.

      We have taken only cab services and the driver is very sensible and understands our very small requirements too. The driver did his best to drive as per our requirement and making sure that our health doesn't get affected. The car is also very clean and hygiene.

      Thank u travel triangle for making my trip memorable. The driver was very excellent and very cooperative. He took us for all sightseeing as we're possible in our shortest time of stay. Only complaint is of stay in mysore the hotel ruchira the Prince had a very pathetic service even drinking water was not available and the room service phone were dead we had to manually go to the reception every time we need something The trip was so nicely planned that we had the best vacation of my life. The stay at moutin mist was remarkable. Thank u team trivale triangle.
