Hey,

Nice pics mate. Had done Yercaud earlier this year. Its good place to spend a weekend and as you mentioned, this can even be done in one day. But this is a ideal spot for a relaxing weekend, where there is not much to visit, but appreciate the weather and taste some good food. I, by the way, stayed in GRT Nature trails and must say would recommend it to anyone.

Yes Bro', all the places are too good and you have to soak yourself over there. The place I stayed was also wonderful and compared to any other resorts.

So from here we came back to the centre of Yercaud and visited the boat house, lake view garden and Yercaud lake

This lake is similar to Ooty lake

Hey Jude,Will share the number where I stayed. It is a beautiful place to stay but the food is a normal one and not some high funda stuff.

Haven't been to Yercaud yet but those snaps of winding ghat roads covered in fog are too tempting.

Lovely pics Shishir.

Wow man. Never seen Shiva like this till now. His matted locks flowing freely and his ears almost the size of his face (a bit bigger, he'll be mistaken for Ganesha). Does this have any history to it?

As Nataraja, his locks are like this. But then the ears!

From chennai, you can to take

Chennai->Kanchipuram->Vellore->Krishnagiri->Dharmapuri->Thoppur->Salem->Yercaud route

Most of the route is through GQ and fully 4-laned, so will be a wonderful drive upto Salem. From salem, Yercaud is about 30 kms with scenic hairpin bends.

Waiting for your full review. I am planning to visit Yercaud soon.

15Kmpl FE was good for the xylo IMO.

Nice photos, wondering how some pictures are clear and some are foggy!

Salem roads looks neat, I am heading for salem this weekend from Chennai and hope the roads are similar.

Post more pics and write more.

Eager to read on.
