A heart shaped lake on the way to the top of the peak is a major tourist attraction.

The lake is believed to have never dried up. U can find the lake half way to the peak, after getting to the lake u need to trek another half way which is through the dense trees of about 1 to 2 kms. A 5 km journey from meppadi town through tea estates to erumakkolli.
