Yercaud lake is best in August season more than the summer season, as the weather is amazing and the boat rides are less crowded. The lake is neat and there is no rush to get anywhere. I had enjoyed this lake in multiple months but this period is the best for visiting the lake and Yercaud.

Had a long paddle boat ride. Had enough time to spend with family. Not much of a sight seeing, rather good experience on water. To add to that the climate was nice with very light drizzling.
