Yercaud - South India Hill Station

yercaud_ladkeYercaud, at a height of 1515 metres, is situated in the Shevaroy Hills of Tamil Nadu. A serene little hill town, Yercaud is located on the Eastern Ghats and promises a unique experience because of its unusual topography.While the rest of this region is more or less dry, Yercaud stands out in welcome contrast with its cool climate and temperatures that never go above 30ºC. Its low profile makes it a less expensive destination than its popular counterparts in south India like Ooty and Kodaikkanal. Yercaud's pretty landscape mostly comprises coffee plantations and thickly forested slopes. It offers good trekking and boating opportunities. It is believed that these hills were part of the ancient megalith-builders' domain which stretched from Cornwall through Brittany and Iberia to India. Legend has it that Yercaud's visitors predate recorded history.
