Yercaud is small quite hill station in Tamilnadu. The town's name is derived from the lake located at its center - in Tamil "Yeri" means Lake and "Kaadu" means forest. Scenically, Yercaud is as enchanting and picturesque as the hill stations on the Western ghats.
It was last moment plan so I didn't get chance to book bus tickets or hotels/resorts in advance. This time I decided to just start the journey and see how its goes. Yercaud is 222 km from Bangalore. I didn't find any direct buses, however there are many Volvo bus services & train from Bangalore to Salem. And then from Salem you can take another bus for Yercaud which is 30 km. Bangalore -> Hosur -> Salem -> Yercaud
