500 km round trip in own Car. We stopped at McD both ways, but there is also A2B next to it. If you enjoy nature, then the trip up the hill and stay are the most enjoyable. Waterfall was the best spot. We missed Botanical Garden as it is closed on Sundays. Don't have high expectations from the spots. Just... More

Its a small but beautiful hill station, a very good place to relax and enjoy for a day. The road from Salem to Yercaud is nice and well maintained, with 20 hairpin bends. One plus point of the place is its not very crowded because of less commercialisation. The view from Gents seat is breathtaking. I enjoyed my visit there... More

The weather was perfect in October. Misty and with a light breeze. The boating in the lake was nice but expensive. Lot of nice views and the road from Salem to Yercaud is also very scenic and beautiful.
