While going from Ooty to Coimbatore, please take route via Emerald, Avalanche, Pilloor dam. It's a beautiful journey with minimum traffic. Many times you will be alone with no one around, except some wild animals. You may sight elephants also. There are some places which allow fishing in Emerald/Avalanche lake. I am yet to try those places. This will make... 更多
Excellent views, many view points all over the roads around, just choose your spot as you go. Don't worry too much about Google Map showing this or that, just download the offline area in advance and don't blindly follow the Navigation Instructions rather choose from the position you are in. Pure Nature, no cranky noisy crowd. PLASTIC LOVERS - KEEP... 更多
The Emerald Dam and views, We stopped by a bridge and they were so nice to watch and kill time. We spent around 20 minutes at the Emerald lake and splurged happily with nature.
Technically a dam that too with TNEB control, the access is limited and photography banned, the lake offers excellent views. There was a small children's park on the right side of the entrance which is in dilapidated condition. If Department of Tourism in conjuction with TNEB promotes this, it offers a very beautiful tourist destination.
While we had been planning going to Avalanche Dam halfway there a taxi told us the dam had been closed for maintenance. Hotels i the city apparently have no communication regarding the same!

While driving from Ooty, Emerald lake comes first. This place is close and ahead of Avalanche. If the water level would have been fair enough, the beauty of the lake would have been very very good. Unfortunately due to very low water level, the lake's beauty dropped.
We had a great time and were well taken care of from start to finish. Amazing! Beautiful view of the lake. Never ending natures beauty , a sight one can't miss , its crystal clear water is pure and transparent . Many shades of water can be observed depending on the position of the sun!
Emerald Lake is some 25 km from Ooty and is a very beautiful peaceful place to visit with family and friends. Good Picnic spot too. Birds and duck can be seen here.
It is on the way to Avalanche, if you have plan to go Avalanche then only go to this place else it is not worth. You can’t go to the lake or dam it is restricted place by TNEB. You can take few photos from outside.
