Came to Salem for Business and after our work we took a detour and went to Yercaud. Locals are very proud of it and we wanted to know what it was all about.For a hillstation to be located within 30 kms of the city is a boon in itself. Now I see why it's so famous

Drive is nice. Roads are good. And that's it. A small lake is there and a fall without water :). When we visited it was very hot so it added to the problems.
