In the beautiful hill station of Yercaud, the skies are endlessly blue and the weather is always pleasant, never too hot nor too cold. Nestled in the hills of Shevaroy in India’s Eastern Ghats, it is both a quiet retreat and a beautiful holiday destination. And since it’s only 29 kilometers away from the city of Salem, it has become a prime location for weary city folks looking to momentarily escape their demanding city lives.

Yercaud’s stunning panoramic mountain and valley views, while typical of any other hill stations in the Ghats, could easily melt anyone’s cares away. Its affordability and unique attractions, however, are really what sets it apart from all others. Perhaps this town’s most famous attractions are the Tipperary View Point in the south, which offers a view of the pure white Elephant Tooth Rocks as they sparkle in the sun; the Kiliyur Falls, which makes an impressive 300-foot jump off the hills into the valley; Yercaud Lake, which has a couple of lovely parks and boating amenities; and the Silk Farm, where visitors can witness firsthand the fascinating natural process of making silk.

Those are but a few of the town’s many attractions, however. Yercaud has modestly beautiful temples, natural monoliths, plantations, orchards, and several more vantage points that will make any visit there all the more worthwhile.

Whatever you fancy is, this Jewel in the South is guaranteed to deliver.

If you are reaching here late in night, make sure you have a hotel booking. The town sleeps early and you may face problem in finding one.

The climb to Yercaud is really good. The driver should be very confident on hills and hair pin bends.
