When you begin climbing the hills from Salem and the landscape begins to change, the air gets remarkably fresh and the monkeys come out to play. Taking a break at a hill station is rejuvenating, helps you relax and appreciate the beauty of nature.
Whenever you’re in Yercaud next (and there’s never a bad time to go), here are a few things you must do!
The Yercaud Lake
An essential at every hill station, the lake is the most bustling part of the town. Head there for a good boating session, lovely views all around and an opportunity for some lake-side activities.
One of the best things about being at a high altitude is the range of stunning views. Yercaud offers many viewpoints to admire the valleys and even the city down below. Head to Pagoda Point, Lady’s Seat, Gent’s Seat, Children’s Seat and the Karadiyur Point for fantastic views and hot bhajjis from local vendors.
Falls and Coffee Plantations
The Killiyur Falls are best visited during or just after the monsoon showers. Cool, green and peaceful, the falls are a must-visit. Yercaud is also known for its coffee plantations. Go on a trek through them for incredible scents, and spot some wildlife while you’re at it!
Adventure Games and Hilltop Dining
The GRT Nature Trails SkyRocca resort in Yercaud offers a range of adventure activities starting at just Rs. 450 per person. Outdoor activities are one of the most creative ways of family bonding. So head on over to experience the bridge walk, net walk, earthquake walk, swinging bridge, multi-vein and zip-line!
Enjoying a beautifully cooked meal is an essential part of a holiday. Indulge in a lovely spread at the Salem Heights restaurant, or have a romantic meal at the Sky Bridge.
