Yercaud is not to be considered as a tourist spot at all. It is a retreat from all the restless activity to withdraw into yourself for self introspection and slowdown to gather yourself. If you have had enough with all 3 W's and at last...More

Pick a good place with a view of the valley to make the most of your stay. The 'Seats' are passable. The loop road is a nice drive. Killiyur falls and Boating on the lake are high points.

It is not so safe to travel late night especially in unknown territory. Travel upto 8-9 pm it should be okay. Route is via Salem. From Yercaud it takes about 1 hour to reach Sales. There onwards you can take suitable train... More
