"Beautiful place of peace"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Oct 5, 2014
Yercaud is the beauty of Salem, when you start driving or riding on the Yercaud road you will feel the bliss of nature giving more and more peace as you go up hill. Once you reached the top there is a lake and parks and several places for sightseeing.
Yercaud treats all class of people equally were all types of facilities are available for all sorts of people. And the important thing is you don't need to spend a lot for this beautiful, natural mesmerizing visit.

"Many beautiful attractions"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Sep 7, 2014
Best place to give a small tour. 2000 is enough to see all the places for a family by taxi. Taxi is available near the bus stand. Don't forget to go boating. Ladies seat, gents seat, Rose garden, patoka point are the main attractions. If you stay for 2 to three days, you can see many other beautiful places. Better to have a guide along with you if you are staying for long time.

"Its beautiful, thrilling"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Sep 1, 2014
We just took a drive as it was raining. Driving in hairpin bends is thrilling. The scenery during dusk is overwhelming. Taking a horse ride is another experience. And the enchanting corn served half burnt is yummy. Mango with a touch of chilli and salt over it tastes good.
