A big part of travel is that feeling you get when experiencing something completely new, something you haven’t seen or done before. Many travel destinations offer an amenity or two that other places don’t–but there are only a few locations in the world that offer a truly unique experience.Some of these places are wonders of nature–a spot where the flora or fauna can’t be found elsewhere, or where the mountains stretch the landscape to impressive formations. Yercaud is one such place – tucked in the serenity of nature. It is indeed nature’s hidden gem.

Yercaud is a hill town in the Shevaroys range in Tamil Nadu.  It is situated at an altitude of 1515 meters (4970 feet) above sea level. The destination, also called as ‘Lake Forest’ draws inspiration from the presence of  vast stretches of greenery in and around the central lake. Another interesting aspect about this place is that the temperature rarely rises above 29 °C (84 °F) or goes below 13 °C (55 °F)..which is just right for the perfect holiday settingNo wonder then, Yercaud is known as the ‘Jewel of the South.’

Possibly the biggest highlight  of this small town is the Yercaud Lake, a refreshing and scenic spot where you can sit back and enjoy the beauty of this pristine hill station. Another place you can visit is Anna Park located close to this lake. The magnificent Killyur Falls which are at a height of 3000 feet above the elevation of the town and are a sight to behold! Serverayan Temple dedicated to Godess Kaveri provides the highest point in Yercaud at 5,326 feet (1,623 m). This is located on Serverayan Hills. A deviation of 6kms from the lake will take you to Pagoda point from where you can get a  mesmerizing view of the hills.
