One of the high points of my recently concluded holiday at Yercaud was a 3 hour trek organised by Suhas, who is a nature enthusiast and a resident of Yercaud for many years now. Suhas is a very friendly person who is very keen to give people a great experience. He went out of his way to regale us with... More

Climate is really good. It is easy to judge the climate from salem. If it is good in salem then be assured it is the same in yercaud

Yercaud is a place that needs time to be absorbed. Not over the usual IT workforce rushed weekend, or for a quick run up a hill from the neighbouring towns. Yercaud needs time and a lot of patience, but perhaps most importantly - someone from the local community to take you through the complete experience of enjoying what it has... More

If you go to Yercaud on high summer days you are really feel sorry for yourself since only a few places gives below average temperatures.90% of the attractions do give same heat as our home.after September it will give you the feel of the Hill Station.

Yercaud is a place where we should not be expecting to experience a typical hill station experience. But it has its own uniqueness which attracts the tourists. This is quite warmer hill station compared with others in Tamilnadu. I went to this place at May and the temperature was hot just like any other place in tamilnadu. But the special... More

The entire place is dirty. On holidays, the place become crammed up for space by people and vehicles. If you are looking for a respite from the scorching sun here, you're in for a rude shock. There is not much difference in temperature compared to the town (Salem) down below. The only attraction for me was the odd 10-15kms drive... More

For those who have been to the various hill stations of Western Ghats like Munnar, Kodaikanal, Valparai. Ooty etc, there is nothing special in Yercaud. The climate is also not cool. It can be considered as a 'week-end get away' for the city dwellers where they cannot find nature in their cities, But for those living in towns surrounded by... More
