Yercaud is a hill station at about 220km away from Bangalore. Since it was a long weekend this time I have decided to drive toYercaud. From Bangalore to Salem we can reach in less than 3Hrs and from there uphill starts. There are 20 clearly marked hair pins to negotiate before we reach Yercaud. The road was very good and traffic was less. We will be at about 5000 feet high from sea level at Yercaud. But the weather wasn’t very cool, can’t compare it with Ooty or Munnar.

The sky wasn’t very clear, as can be seen from the pictures – the colour reproduction didn’t come out good. Main attraction is the view of Salem city from the top of the hills.
