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
