The place is great for a weekend drive from Bangalore but if your really want to enjoy the place and get the best deals then go on weekdays as the whole town is empty and cleaner.

Yercaud - Great place for a short vacation from places like Bangalore, Mysore, Coimbatore, Kochi etc. drive to Yercaud is very memorable and road is good. Good budget hotels help your action to be cost effective. Preferable for a quite family vacation.

Liked the wonderful 20 hairpin bend drives, lovely boating in Emerald lake - we took both motor as well as pedal boat rides. Don't miss the Montfort convent school (be there between 10 am to 12 pm or 2.30 to 4 pm). the road to Ladies seat was terrible, avoid if possible ! Good day trip to Yercaud.
The best part was lunch at Sweet Rascal, continental treat restaurant run by Mr. Vishu. If you are newly wed, best place as it is very romantic. Overall a lovely place to visit in december.

Worth visiting once. Went up the hill. Took some pictures near the lake and left. Beautiful place, but not clean. No good places to eat or drink once you reach the top.

Visited Yercaud once on my way to Kerala through Tamil Nadu.
It is a cool but quiet hill station (quieter than Ooty!), with a lake and nothing much really.
You can visit once.

Bear in mind that everything is costly up the hill
