A place of perennial salubrious climes, Yelagiri is a small hill station in Tamil Nadu, 285 kms from Chennai. Long walks in the lap of nature are the essence of this place, and to add to the fun, the tourism ministry has also started providing facilities for rock climbing and para gliding. It is a village untouched by modernity, and gives a feel of the rustic life of the tribals who live here.
Located amidst four mighty hills, the hill-hamlet of Yelagiri is a beautiful site, free from commercialization that often ails charming hill stations. Yelagiri is actually a cluster of small villages spread over a couple of hills. The hills are gentle, there’s a lake large enough to stroll around, and the weather is always pleasant. Dominated largely by tribals, this place has managed to sustain its ethnicity despite the invasions of modernity.

A trekker's wonderland, one can walk downhill to nearby places like Jalagamparai Waterfalls or even take uphill treks on the Swami Malai Peak at 4,338 ft which is the highest point in Yelagiri. There is also a man-made lake called Punganur Lake, which also makes for a picnic spot because of the children's park and zoo.Visit the Velavan Temple with its nice views and the Government Silk Farm at Mangalam, 5 km away. One must take home the pure YMCA honey from Yelagiri, as it is totally organic and can be trusted to be pure. Jackfruit is also a major produce here, and if you come here in season, your taste buds are in for a total delight. Ideal for short getaways from Chennai and Bangalore.
