Yercaud – The Lake Forest

Yercaud is a mild hill station in Tamil Nadu. It is not as popular as Ooty or Kodaikanal, the two major hill stations in South India. There lies its beauty. It is less commercialised and a large part of this hill stays with its virgin charm. It is blessed with a lush green surroundings and a pleasant weather.This is the only hill station in Tamil Nadu with a natural lake. All the other hill stations have artificial lakes. It has numerous view points, rose gardens and parks. There are also mild and strenuous trek routes to provide some action. There are a few colonial era buildings like churches and schools worth visiting. It takes a drive time of 7 hours to reach Yelagiri from Chennai. So it is an ideal destination for a  weekend getaway.
