The lifeline of the city, center of the town as well, has all types of boating facilities available, must do activity, professional photographers take your pics while boating and they do a pretty decent job.

The best place at yercaud. You can take the motor boat or the peddaling boat with family to show the mini zoo(deer and dinosaur). You can pedal the boat around the island to have fun moments with family and breath taking moments of the trees filled with various birds...
