Yercaud is one of my favorite hill stations. It is an excellent weekend gateway. This a great place to relax and you can visit the place with your family or friend.
About the place
Yercaud is a hill station in Salem district of Tamilnadu. It is 230 km from Bangalore.
Yercaud is called as Ooty of Poor, however it is nothing less than Ooty. This is beautiful hill station with many stunning view points. It became one of the busiest weekend gateways specially from Bangalore.
Drive to Yercaud from Bangalore will be the first thing to enjoy. Excellent road throughout starting from Bangalore through Krishnagiri, Salem and finally to Yercaud. There are 22 hairpin bend in Salem- Yercaud road. I was bit scared first time when I drove to Yercaud, however I did not face any challenge in any of the hairpin bend as it so nicely planned. One thing I want to mention here is if you follow Google Map if sometimes show an exit few km before Salem and the road goes through a forest. Avoid that as that is restricted area, go by Salem.
