Velliangiri Mountains Overview

Ranked 4 of 213 sightseeing in Coimbatore
Velliangiri Mountains, a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve of the Western Ghats is located near Poondi, about 40 km from Coimbatore.
This mountain is popularly known as the 'Kailash of the South', and is an important religious destination. Lots of devotees visit the mountains during the annual pilgrimage season in February.
The main attraction here is a Lord Shiva temple atop the mountain, under a natural cave. This mountain is also known as Seven hills because while climbing there are seven undulations which gives a feeling like crossing seven hills.

The last hill peak is totally wind- blown and nothing except grass grows here. The trek is 8 km long and steep at some places.
A Yoga and meditation centre run by the Isha Foundation at the base of the hills is also a major tourist attraction.

A lot to climb over

On 9th Jan 16, We started from Isha Yoga Center, we reached this place by 4. 00 am. It was a 7 mountains temple which we should climb, the first 3 mountains will be of steps. From 4th mountain we can see surrounding mountains and views, 5th mountain will be smooth and at the end we can find small MANSAROVAR which contains pure water. From the 6th mountain it will be somewhat hard and finally in the 7th mountain we will reach fantastic view where weather will be unpredictable and climbing is also tough. Then initially we can have the darshan of Lord Shiva and the return process is also same. It will take 5 - 6 hrs to complete this process, best time to visit is FEB to MAY.

Most scenic place

This mountain range is just epic! The chilly winds blowing on our early morning ride to this place made us feel alive. The way to the hills is itself laden with so many lush green fields and the mountains themselves in a distant view, that I, for a moment forgot that there was, indeed a outside world, in the city waiting for me to get in and start kicking. Go trekking over here; it's a great getaway destination for a day.
