Very Nice place. Easy gate out from Bangalore ... Excellence for a weekend destination from Bangalore. Highly Recommended. Awesome Hill station. Even far better than Ooty. In Yercaud, there is 22 hairpin bend to reach the top... better than Ooty (35)

we visited this place in may end. There is nothing much to see. Only a small lake in the heart of the city fully overcrowded. The road from bangalore to yercaud is very nice. Is a great location for long drive.

Its a wonderful place like Ooty and Kodaikannal. You need at least one day to cover most of the places. Good climate through out the year.

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.
