Road Trip from Bengaluru to Yercaud

Hello Trippers

During the Good Friday weekend [April 1st week], we wanted to move out and needed to be back before Sunday as our son had his culminating ceremony after his 3 years in Montessori.

As we were getting ready to take our Cheetah for a spin, one of my friends called to tell me that he had started a camping business in Yercaud and that I should go check it out. And bingo, the plan was made, as Yercaud is 240 km away from Bengaluru, where we stay, and the roads are also awesome.

We packed our bags the night before, and on the 7th around 5:30, we left for Yercaud and reached there at 10:30 with 2 stops of 10 minutes and 30 minutes [At Aahaa Family Restaurant]. This restaurant is on the route itself, so no detour is necessary.

* Traveled via Electronic City, Hosur, Krishnagiri, Karimangalam, Bommidi, Poomarathoor, Kolagur, Karadiyoor, and Wild Troupe. Route
* Total Distance: 480 km [To & Fro]
* Trip Dates: 7th & 8th
* Mileage: 15.2 & 14.6 [AC on full blast as the temperature is soaring in TN at this time of the year]
* Hair Pin Bends: 19
* Stay: Wildtroupe Camping.
* Places of Interest: Boating, Piku Park, Poppy Hills, Grange Adventures, Cave Temple, Annamalaiyar Temple [it is not included in any cab package, its 5 km away from Yercaud city center towards pagoda point]

One can easily spend 2-3 hours at Annamalaiyar temple, which is located on one of the highest peaks in Yercaud and also serves as a scenic point.

Well, this is all for the Yercaud trip. Do share your love if you find this useful.
