Reading Time: 4 minutes

The Ooty Boat House is favourably visited to enjoy Boating. Visitors worldwide come for the boat ride; undoubtedly, the weekend draws the mad rush, but weekdays also have people gathering for Boating. The Ooty Lake is over 65 acres, and Boating is a major tourist attraction.

However, the other activities glance from a window of opportunity and demand attention. When I visited the Boat House for the first time, my eyes also saw the excitement of doing a boat ride, and other activities went out of focus.

However, I went there multiple times throughout the course, living in Ooty for 10 months.

Through this Travel Story, I would like to spotlight different things apart from Boating at Ooty Boat House, mainly amusement rides like Mini Train, Wipeout, Dashing Car, and many more that kids and youngster families would also have a fantastic time riding. Thus, it could be a fun outing.

Ooty Boat House Apart from Boating

And that’s me covering the travel story at the Ooty Boat House. Indeed, I told a tourist to click my picture.

I have stayed in Ooty for an extended period, and I have covered this travel story after experiencing by visiting it numerous times.

The Ooty Boat House was around 4.5km from where I stayed. On alternate days, I used to leave the house around 8:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. to reach on time. The Boat House opens at 9 a.m., and I prefer to come as early as possible before it becomes crowded.

The weekends draw a mad rush right from the opening time. If you’re there on weekdays, try to visit then.
