Do not go with the entrance as the entry to the Zeenath is like u are driving on a foot path which needs real attention. However, once u reach the gate, a warm... More

This is a resort just immediately after the last hairpin bend at the Yelagiri Hills near Vellore/Jollarpetai in Tamil Nadu.

Just a few cottages of... More

We were looking for relaxing trip a short drive from Bangalore for a day or 2. Considered Yelagiri/Yercaud. We were worried that Yelagiri might be hotter than Bangalore, and may not be worth the trip. But it was good! The drive was very nice (mostly) - Slow traffic in Bangalore city (took us 1 hour to reach E-city flyover from... More
