About Yercaud Hills

Yercaud is one of the most prominent hills stations in the Tamil Nadu. Situated about 22 km from the Salem, the hills are present at an altitude of 1515 meters above the sea levels. The area of the Yercaud Hills is immensely popular for its orange groves as well as the coffee plantations. This lies along the orchidarium and is run by the Botanical Survey of India. Often these hills are referred to as the Shevaroy Hills. It is so called as the highest point of these hills is the site of the Servarayan Temple. The Yercaud Hills is also a home to the Murugan group of Temples. There is a nearby lake in the hills that is a prominent boating site.

Historical Context: In Tamil, Yeri means lake and Kaadu means forest.
Pro Tip: Keep a spare tyre as the road to the hill is bumpy and there is no shop in the route.
