This place is not very commonly known but probably the best view point in Yercaud. Also some local said it is the top most point in Yercaud. Worth a visit.

The approach road to this place is quite narrow. And the road to view point is accessible only on foot. Its a pretty 30 min trekking experience. Nothing around the view point except a watch tower. Breeze was excellent.

This is perhaps by far the best location in Yercaud if you're here for nature. It takes about 10 mins walk though a small village, muddy roads and lush green jungle to the watch tower, and the view is totally worth it. But that's not all! There is a hidden trail through the jungle left of the watch tower, marked... More

Must go if you are visiting Yercaud. And Go, early in the morning on a summer and then mid-morning in the winter if you want clear views! has an absolute clear view of the entire valley. Also from here you can do trekking.

It is by far the best View point in Yercaud.The access road to this View point is in poor condition .Hope the forest department does something to improve access and maintain this location. During clear weather conditions,the Mettur Dam is visible from this View point. A must visit tourist spot in Yercaud.
