Trip to Yercaud ''Poor Man''s Ooty'' in TamilNadu...

Yercaud is a hill station in Salem District, in Tamil Nadu, India. It located in the Shevaroys range of hills in the Eastern Ghats; the Yercaud hill area is called the Shevaroy Hills. It is situated at an altitude of 1515 meters (4970 ft) above sea level, and the highest point in Yercaud is the Servarayan temple, at 5,326 feet (1,623 m). It is so named owing to the abundance of trees categorized as a forest near the lake, the name signifying Lake Forest.

Yercaud is also called as Jewel of the South.
