Pictures Of Avalanche Lake, Nilgiris Biosphere Reserve And Nearby Areas

The lake is located at a distance of 28 kms from Ooty in the Nilgiris. It was formed naturally in the year 1823 due to a massive landslide and therefore is named as Avalanche lake. Small waterfalls falling down from the encircling mountains creates a picture perfect ambience. The surrounding forests are so dense that even sunlight cannot penetrate through them.
Also called as Avalanchi, this lake is mostly visited after monsoons as the high water level offers great opportunity for trout fishing. Fishing rods and other equipments can be taken from a trout hatchery located near the lake. Other activities like trekking and camping are also popular among tourists. Visitors should note that as the lake is situated in the Nilgiri Biosphere reserve, prior permission is needed from the forest office in Ooty.


  1. The blueness of the blue sky is something to behold ... just like the sky I saw at Gangotri, such a mysterious shade

  2. Nice post. As a highlight of Ooty tourism, it has pleasant weather all year round that makes it a perfect getaway destination in the summer. The lush green tea plantations and dense forests offer stunning vistas. Click here to know about popular Ooty hotels.


Brickbats or Boquets I accept them all, vent it out here!
