Berijam Lake:Kodaikkanal



Berijam Lake


When the mercury soars during summer,as is this year,most travelling south Indians head towards Kodaikkanal,the misty cool abode in Tamil Nadu.We have been to this place several times but that didint sap our enthusiasm to visit Kodaikkanal one more time.

We started from Trivandrum and reached Maduari and settled there for the night.After having received the blessing of Madurai Meenakshi Amman headed straight to Kodaikkanal.We could see heavy traffic up and down the hills leading to the hill resort.The temparature dipped as we climbed the undulating road towards Kodaikkanal.

  Kiddish......

We made ouselves comfortable in one of the old and economical lodges of Kodai.Spend the evening at the Kodai lake.Next day morning at 9am reached the Forest office to take permission to visit Berijam lake.I was forced to spend around 1hr for getting the permission.





Then we headed straight to Moir point which is the gateway to Berijam Lake.

There were quite a few tourists who took the pain to get the permission and see Berijam Lake.It about 14kms from Moir point to Berijam.The road is in good condition and misty surrounding was waiting for us.We stopped at many places and enjoying the serene atmosphere.




A Rvine on the way.......


The Berijam lake is quite vast and looked very calm and beautiful.No boating is allowed.No refreshments are also not there.We spend around 2 hours at Berijam and then headed back to Kodai.A very good trip which we all enjoyed.And for sure we will come back.........
