Day 1 at Yercaud

Me along with my team members started for the beautiful location of Yercaud at around 6 early morning. We all expected to reach the destination by around 12PM by covering the distance within the 6 hours of duration, which is considered as the best time for the Lunch. While on the way we planned to finish our breakfast.

The road is bit bad till the destination of Hosur. From Hosur the route NH-47 starts and is extremely well maintained till Krishnagiri. When you are about to reach the destination of Dharmapuri, you should be ready experience some unexpected potholes which are visible on the route. But after that location the further route is bit well maintained.

From Salem to Yercaud, the first 15-20 Kms is supposed to be the plain road which is the last 10Kms from the destination of the Ghats section. As the traffic is not busy, so the driving along the route is not at all tough and people really do enjoy driving on this route. 

We ordered some fluffy idlis with some four different kinds of chutney which were really awesome. But the coffee which we have ordered seemed as if we took the juice instead of coffee, as it was quite sweet. Further continuing our journey we reached an hour late from the expected time by around 1PM.

After the long trip we thought of taking some nap and got to rest for at least 2-3 hrs. When we woke up we saw the dense fog across the lake, due to which we all could feel the cool. 

All our group members took the normal boat and went across the whole lake. After that we took the awesome bhelpuri of the Tamil taste and it was really wonderful to taste it. And finally we were all rejuvenated by evening.

Day 2 at Yercaud

We took the second day as the sightseeing option day. We started from the Rose Garden which is well maintained repository of some unique and rare plants and flowers. The plants were quite lively and seemed energetic with the environment. 

They also have a small nursery from where you can take the plants. The in charge of the organization is quite friendly and do provides proper tips on the gardening stuff as well.

Day 3 at Yercaud

Was the final day of the departure. We took the Idli Sambhar stuff and then moved ahead for our return trip. We started our returned trip around 10. The trip was not wonder full as it was while going to the destination because we had to face the heat of the Bangalore. This ended the wonderful and lovely trip.
