The Emerald lake is located in beautiful surroundings. The drive to the lake is not so good, but one can enjoy superb views at many places en route. You can't go on the dam.

just few kms for avalanche first check post, one way leads to emerald lake. This is nothing but another view point of back waters of upper bhavani lake. If someone is not able to see avalanche then they can visit this place without missing much.

Lake undoubtedly is beautiful but you can view it only from a distance so not really worth too much effort.

Sorry, I hate the proposition. Most of Malabar is spoilt like this. Please take bath in you hotel and enjoy the pristine beauty.
