Yercaud HotelsSearch Hotel By Name:
Yercaud, a sumptuous and beauteous hill station placed amid the ostentatious Shevaroys Hills of the Eastern Ghats is an extremely amicable and pacifistic destination of Tamil Nadu. The word ‘Yercaud’ has a Tamil origin which means ‘beautiful forest’ or ‘lake forest’. Yercaud, endowed with the profound natural elegance is rightly recognized as the ‘Jewel of the South’. Perched at the altitude of 4970 ft, this renowned hill station is also esteemed as ‘Poor Man’s Ooty’.
Servaroyan temple, situated at the altitude of 5326 feet is the highest point of Yercaud region. The Shevaroys range gets its name from the auspicious Servaroyan temple of Yercaud. Ascending the Shevaroys Hills at Salem and then cruising through the fabulous coffee estates, aromatic spices plantations and exotic orange groves for some 30 km via a spectacular rambling road will lead you to the Arcadia on this planet: Yercaud.
As a kid you must have wished to pay a visit to a fairy land where you can touch a cloud. Yercaud will make all those fancies come true. Be it 3 in the morning or 2 in the afternoon, you will constantly experience clouds passing by you. If you open your window early in the morning, it will be foggy everywhere and you will feel that the clouds are peeping into your room. The vista from the plateau near Servaroyan Temple is so bewitching that you witness clouds passing below you.
If you want to describe Yercaud at its best, you can actually use the phrase ‘being in cloud nine’ in its literal sense. Sipping Yercaud coffee while enjoying the pleasant breeze sitting on the edge of Yercaud Lake truly supplants a divine experience.
