Yercaud Tourism & Travel Guide

Fondly known as the jewel of the South, Yercaud is a hill station in the Salem district of Tamil Nadu. Known for its stunning beauty, trekking trails and abundant forests, Yercaud is a wonderful vacation spot. There are various touristy spots in and around Yercaud and your holiday schedule will be packed. Do visit the 32-km Loop Road on which a drive is beautiful and perfect for a relaxed afternoon. There is also an option to go boating here but if you have other things to occupy you, you can give boating a miss. A small walk through a village will take you to Karadiyur View Point. The watchtower here gives you a chance to admire the valley below and the surrounding mountains. It's best to head here on a clear day and do remember to wear proper shoes since there is a lot of walking! Lady's seat, Pagoda Point and Big Lake are some other tourists spots where you can spend your time.
Best time to visit Yercaud is from November to February

Kiliyur Valley, Yercaud
Since I was a little short on time, after a small break at Pagoda point I rushed towards Kiliyur Waterfalls. Kiliyur is about 15 km from Pagoda point but because of the ghat sections it'll take about 25 min to reach there from Pagoda point. Once there you'll have to park your vehicles near the side shops at the entrance of the falls. From here you have to descend a distance of about 1 km after which there is a flurry of stairs (about 200 of them) and then you'll be able to see Kiliyur falls. When I visited it was off-season so the falls were almost dry and not quite worth the visit. The views are still good and will make you feel like you are in the middle of a forest reserve.

Yercaud hills, Yercaud
Pagoda point was on top of my view point list. All the view points are in the vicinity of Yercaud and hardly 10 km from each other. Pagoda point is like Yercaud's own Nandi Hills. The views are awesome to say the least. You will get an idea of the elevation of Yercaud from this point. There is a parking lot where you can park your vehicles and after that there is a 100 m stretch where you can walk and enjoy the views.
