People travelling from long distance like chennai are advised to switch your plans to yercud since yelagiri has nothing special. Moderate temperature. But during festival time they decorate the place in forms of animals using eatables and flowers. Poor accessibility. People are helpful.

mixed feeling on the trip, to be honest there is nothing much extraordinary to see in yelagiri, crouching heat similar to Bangalore, if you are trekker can visit Swamimalai trek at the top there a is a temple, trekking is about 3.5 KM one side.

Had been to this place with friends on week end. Dont expect too much from this place. Apart from one lake and sunrise nothing we found more. Adventure activities not impressed. We can get variety of fruits in local area. Really fantastic.

It's free of cost. However, let me give you a heads up that it's not ideally a trekking spot. Just climbing up a little and you reach there.
