"Travel through hairpin bends are very easy to drive"

The best route to Yercaud from Pondy will be Pondy-Villupuram-Ulundurpet-Attur-Selam-Yrecaud, and the best time to start will be in the afternoon so that you can reach there by evening, and rest. The next day can be your start of adventure. We travelled in my car. The climb to the hills in having a few hairpin bends but are very easy to drive. Yercaud is a very small place, with a few points, but the weather is what makes it a very special place to visit.

The road was very good. In day time it was hot and it gets chilled during night time. We have gone there mainly to visit Montfort school. There are not many good restaurants over there. It is not very busy like other hill stations and we can avoid the huge crowds here. Yercaud can be developed further to attract more tourists.

"Excellent road for up and down hill"

4/7
Posted 8 Mar

Excellent road for up and down hill and being well-maintained. Good sight seeing places on the way. May require adding some parking space to park and viewing the bird's view of the land from up hill. One should take sufficient drinking water while up hill driving; you will find no shops on the road while uphill drive. Lots of natural trees and one can feel the fresh air while climbing up.
