A best place for Eco tourism, surrounded by high trees and plantations. Few things you should never miss here are Yercaud Lake, Lady's seat, Killiyur falls, Bear's cave and Green house.

Visited on a Sunday as a day trip from Bangalore. Water was less in the lake. Loop road is not to be missed. Is worth it.

Peace, serenity, cleanliness are three words to describe Yercaud for me! Lovely drive up as well! Not a great sight seeing spot, but worth the whole of ur coming to escape the regular madness is urban living.

Hello, The roads to Yercaud are fine. But its not the best. You can drive easily. But try to ride up before 7pm. Coz if in case you are lost you might need some locals help. And ofcourse the google map works perfectly.
