Yercaud by road

Cool place to simply chill out

Went on a day trip from Bangalore to Yercaud, which is about 225 km away. Took a Tamil Nadu state transport undertaking bus. Left Bangalore around 0645 and reached Yercaud around 1400. Would have taken 2 hours less by car. The bus was moving at maybe 40-50 kmph cos every state road transport bus is fitted with a speed governor. There were several times when I felt the driver would doze off at the wheel! The ascent from Salem to Yercaud is steep, with several hair pin bends. Yercaud is a small hill station with a lake in the middle. Besides the various points, the Shevaroy temple is a major attraction. It is located on the highest peak in the hill station. The hills are lush green. Once you settle into your hotels, you can go on treks around the place or simply chill out. Some hotels offer great views of the valley. While on the way to Yercaud, you have to pass Salem. I suggest a meal of rice/sambhar in Saravana Bhavan at the bus stand. Delight for the taste buds!
