Nice place for short vacation

Yercaud is a nice place near Blore and Chennai. You can plan a two day vacation here with kids. If you are nature lover you can stay here for months.

I had visited yercaud when i was in salem for some official work. When we have vistied it was awesome atmosphere there. At one place it was totally cloudy atmosphere which was awesome feel. You will get lot of spices at hill station, it is worth visit for a 2-3 days, you can get even bicycle to roam around.

Travel from Bangalore to Yercaud is a good drive. Just before the hill in about 20kms, there are 20 hair bends. The hill drive slows you down. It is quite a compact hill station. The spots are nearby too. Liked the Pagoda point view which was quite a deep and a panoramic view with cool breeze and rays of sunlight.

I would say considering the distance I had to travel from ernakulam, Munnar would have been far better and worth it. However a decent place off town is all about it

A beautiful, serene place, with wonderful atmosphere, very simple and a small hill station. There is nothing exotic about the place. But very appropriate place for the leisure holiday and for those who love long walks and treks. It also gives beautiful panoramic view of Salem city and coffee plantations are the highlights of the place.

Yercaud is colder, greener, has cleaner air and silent compared to Bangalore. That's about all the reasons you should visit the place. There are various attractions - an "old school" school, a deer park, some sports avenues, good view points, a lake, a hilly road with 21 hair pin bends - all of which are good enough for a single...
