Overview

Yelagiri is often dubbed as the "Poor man`s Ooty" but not anymore. Yelagiri is realizing its potential and in the coming days it looks all set to emerge as the hub of adventure sports in India. A recent fillip in this direction has been the three day annual International paragliding festival.
Cocooned conveniently between Bangalore and Chennai the Yelagiri hills provide a soothing place to the tired urbanities with lush vegetation, pure air and misty clouds.

Thanks to the excellent roads the place is easily accessible thus serving as a nice weekend getaway. A perfect weekend at Yelagiri Hills is all about a little adventure and lots of leisure at 3500 feet above sea level.

If you are looking for a large number of tourist attractions then Yelagiri is certainly not for you. Yelagiri is a place full of peace and quietude. The slow pace of the Hills provides the right kind of relaxation from the rigours of urban life. You need to just relax here at this Cosy Hill station.

Hi,

Sorry to say that there is no good hotels with lake view there. You may see some hotels with the name having lake view in them probably they are nearer to lake but you won't  get the view of it.
 
I suggest you to choose Silent Water Retreat .
 
The following are the places to visit there:-
 
PungannoorLake Park: Pungannoor Lake Park is the primary object of interest at Yelagiri. The lake is not very big and has a garden as well as miniature zoo as attractions.
 
Nilavoor Lake: Nilavoor Lake is not very big and more like a pond. The lake takes its name from the village of Nilavoor. The district administration has drawn a big plan to promote the lake.

Swamimalai Hill: Swamimalai Hill is another popular sightseeing destination in Yelagiri. No matter if you are a trekker or a picnicker you will find the place just fabulous.

Jalagamparai waterfalls: This place is a must visit if you happen to be in Yealgiri after post monsoon period. To reach Jalagamparai waterfalls, it takes about an hour from the center of Yelagiri. There is also a trekking option here.
 
Karadi Malai Hills: This is also an ideal trekking option. It literally means “Bear Hill “in Tamil.
 
Velavan Temple: Lord Murugan Temple or the Velavan Temple as the locals call it is situated atop a hillock. The temple is located at one of the highest places of yelagiri offering a panoramic view of the entire hill.
 
Moksha Vimochana Temple: visit this temple if you want to get rid of your sins. The temple was founded by a saint. The atmosphere of the places is quite serene unlike a temple.
 
Nature Park: Nature Park is one of the best addresses in Yelagiri. It’s actually a theme park, set up in 12 acres area.

14 Hair pin Bends: A total of 14 pin hair pin bends fall on your way on the spiraling ghat road that leads to the top.
 
Telescope Point: As you make your way up the hill through the famous hair pin bends, just after the 12th hair pin bend there is the “Telescope House”.

Government Silk Farm: The Government silk Farm also known as the Sericulture farm is a place where you can actually see silk worms. It is located at place called Mangalam that is 5 km away
Government Herbal Farm: The Government Herbal Farm is located adjacent to the Punganur Lake. It is maintained by local forest department. Many herbs and shrubs cultivated here forms the ingredients of Ayurveda and Siddha medicines. 
 
Important Note:
 
Thinks won't available up in the hill are:
 
1. No credit cards accepted.
2. No cellphone Network
3. No petrolpumps.
4, No liquore.
5. No Fancy stores.


So be prepared and enjoy the nature.

Thank you.

Hi,
 
From Chennai to Jolarpet by 102B Chennai - Thirupattur which sarts  in CMBT.
First bus from Jolarpet to Yelagiri is 5:45 am. Similarly first bus from yelagiri to Jolarpet in the morning is 5:30 am.
 
Last bus from the jolarpet to Yealgiri is 6:30 pm. It's better to go bit ealier than the schduled time as they play depending on the crowd. So it's better don't look for the last bus.
 
Thank you for contacting Kiomoi.
 
Sundar.
