The visit in the winter to yelagiri, is just too good to be true. You can stroll around the lake and park during day time and take a leisurely walk in the evening. Is been a refreshing break.

This is a good place to relax and unwind. One can spend one full day visiting temples, doing adventure sports, visiting the two parks, boating in the lake and visiting the view points. However if you compare it with OOTY, KODAIKANAL and other hills stations,...More
