Good place to visit over weekend. You will find good hotels there. We went in June 2016. It was very cold there compared to Bangalore. Very scenic place, although some of tourist places were not clean, but overall all a good place to visit. Also, you will get drink only in few restaurant.

yercaud is a very compact and salubrious hill side holiday destination. it used to be a quiet and wonderful place till about a decade ago. but sadly with the rampant commercialization and the unruly and careless manner in which the tourists treat it has changed its charm. the local to are to blame that they have not taken pride intheir...

It is a picturesque pool surrounded by gardens and well wooded areas. Boating in the cold water of the lake is enchanting as well as refreshing.

If you're visiting yercaud then make sure to stay at the lake forest resort near the lake. That can add some sense of worthiness to that trip. Otherwise there are better places to go to.
