Pykara is a river around 20 km north west from Ooty in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The river has a dam & a power plant. Due to this dam the back water forms a very big lake kind of a thing which sometimes is also referred to as Pykara Lake. There is a boat house which has boat rides with motor boats. This amazing boat ride with beautiful scenery of the Nilgiri trees in the back drop makes the place very attractive to the tourists. We need to take a left after the Pykara village while coming from Ooty & going towards Mysore & go around 3 km inside from the main road.
