No place to visit. No good place to eat, not even an average place to eat. Very expensive hotels and very poor service. Never want to go to such type of place.

Kodaikanal is famous than Yercaud, If it is rain also you can enjoy with rain and mist... If you want you can also go to yercad from Kodaikanal for 1 or 2 days... Kodiakanal is better option than Yercaud
