Enjoyed the trip from Chennai to Yercaud via Tanjore. Visited Tanjore big temple which was our big dream for the past 5 yrs. I stayed one night in Tanjore and next day we went to Yercaud and stayed there for 2 nights, stay was very much satisfactory. I would like to visit one more time if time permits. Thanks to the Lake Forest hotel!

The national highways are very good nowadays and have enough signboards and direction assistance. Though there were many restaurants and highway stopover points, we hardly took any. It is only in Salem we got a little confused with road diversions due to poor sign boards due to developmental activities.

If you want go to Yercaud by train you need to plan it 30 days before and have to book tickets in advance. We took Tambaram to Salem by train. Travellers can also take Central to Salem train, once you reach Salem you have to take a bus to reach Yercaud, which was a good experience while travelling in the hills.
