The road going to Madumalai from Ooty passes through some very beautiful landscapes. Crossing a forested stretch brings you to the point from where you would have to trek for half a kilometer to reach the Pykara lake and Pykara Falls. Located in a lush green bowl shaped valley, the Pykara Falls cascade down a series of rocks. Unlike most waterfalls, the Pykara Falls does not fall from a great height but gently tumbles over a rather sedate slope. Close by is the Pykara Lake nestled between a shola forest. Most visitors enjoy a ride in the lake on one of the large motorboats available for hire. A snack bar run by the Tamil Nadu Tourism offers a variety of eatables as do the few stalls that are operating near the main road.
