bangalore to yelagiri

In bangalore, travel, weekend trips on July 5, 2007 by rajeev kumar

this weekend we have been to yelagiri.to go to yalagiri follow hosur road to reach krishnagiri and then take left turn towards chennai. Go straight till almost Vinayamwadi where you can see the sign for yalagiri. Follow the signs and the next prominent left turn which is almost 15 kms goes to yelagiri hills. Though we missed this turn and went to jolarpettai raliway station to come back. overall the drive is very comfortable.

the place is very small, so small that on foot you can cover it in 20 min. there is nothing besides a lake. Market is also very small. No glitzy resorts. All resort looks from back days. we found a place to stay in one of the newer places which was clean and in main road of yelagiri, close to lake.

what the place has is good views, good climate – though a hill station yet less colder than bangalore, clean roads, fruit trees on the road – jackfruit, mango, jamun, guava. you can visit around nurseries and pick some plants. There was no decision to make , just go around the place and do everything there still you have lot of time left. could find only one restaurent where we spent long lunches and dinners.

  1. Hi,
    Can you tell me more details about this place. i am planning to go here this weekend.

  2. Aravind,

    mainly it is a very small place, you can walk the main town in 15 min. There is a lake , and some trekking spots. Nothing much to see except get some peace of mind. Not a bustling tourist place.For overnight stay If you can book hotel in advance then better but still chances are there that you can find on the spot itself.

  4. I HAD BEEN TO THIS PLACE YESTERDAY, 18TH OCTOBER, 2008 AS AN OFFICIAL TRIP TO FIND A FRUIT TREES FOR GETTING FRUITS FOR PROCESSING. I FOUND IT TO BE NICE PLACE FOR A SHORT STAY. THERE ARE A SOME HOTELS TO STAY AND FEW HOTELS SERVE FOOD. GOOD PLACE TO GO FOR A DAY PICNIC.

    LET YOU KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS PLACE AFTER I MY NEXT VISIT OF TRKKING AT YALAGIRI HILLS FOREST TO ASSESS THE FRUIT CROP WHICH WOULD BE BY NOVEMBER 1ST WEEK.
