Yercaud is a popular hill station in Tamil Nadu after Ooty and Kodaikanal. Yercaud is situated at a distance of 40 km from Salem city and offers a much needed short break from the hustle and bustle of city life.
.
How to reach: Salem Junction is the nearest railhead, 30 km away by road. TNSTC / SETC buses are available from New Bus Stand. The frequency is good. One may alternatively hire a cab to reach Yercaud. Plenty of accommodation options are available to suit every pocket.

Once I went to Yercaud when I was Studying Degree. We had an Excursion and this place was Awesome with Scenic Beauty, Specially that Lake which is located at the Centre Offers Boat Ride(Pedal).

One way taxi fare is about Rs. 600. Buses are very crowded during weekends. Some pics shot during my visit last year. My friend loves posing in every photo which I hate. Try mirichi bajji when you visit the lake. Buy cheap coffee beans at Glenmorgan estate. If you are there on a sunday visit weekly shandy(sandai) to buy cheap spices from Kolli Mallai(Fire Hills) tribals.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
