Yelagiri Tourism & Travel Guide

The misty hill station of Yelagiri is a popular tourist destination in Tamil Nadu. Located amidst four mountains, Yelagiri is known for the pleasant climate that stays all round the year and its zero-noise surroundings. The drive to this destination takes you through 14 hairpin bends that finally open up to the enchanting bounty of natural beauty. The most popular site here is the Punganoor lake, which is centrally-located and offers boat riding while lazily gazing at the surrounding mountains. The nature park near the lake is a quaint meadow embellished with a wide assortment of flowers and dancing fountains, this making for an ideal picnic spot. Yelagiri also offers great trails for trekking. Swamimalai, a 4338-feet high peak in the Yelagiri Hills, is a beautiful hike 1 hour from the mail town. The Paragliding Club here hosts an international paragliding festival in September, which is a must visit for lovers of this adventure. Contrary to expectations, Yelagiri has numerous lodging options and various eating joints as well. Don't forget to take back some home-made honey, jackfruit and local agricultural products from here.
