When there's silence and serenity all around, you don't have to do much to ensure peace of mind as you unwind at Yelagiri. Yet, for the adventure seeker, for the thinker, for the romantic, for the holidayer, for the honeymooning couple and for the parent, there's so much to do. Take a look!
A hilly terrain offers ample scope for this activity. Besides the deep, dark woods wait to be explored, the trails await a new pair of feet to walk past and Mother Nature looks forward to display her picture-perfect self to new visitors day after day. One of the popular trekking routes is the one from the hills to the Jalagamparai waterfall. The trek to Swamimalai and back is also quite famous.
Be it rowing or paddle boating, the lake at Yelagiri offers ample scope for setting off into the tranquil waters and having the time of your life.
The Children's Park at Yelagiri ensures that children are never left out of the action, even if their parents choose more passive forms of unwinding or de-stressing. The cool weather and the greenery around, the play equipment and the presence of other kids from a similar age group – children need no further invitation to have fun.
The Summer Festival
Once every year during May and June, Yelagiri breaks into a palette of colours as cultures, customs, traditions, art and people come together to celebrate the Summer Festival. If you are at Yelagiri in summer, make sure you don't miss out on this. The festival is organized by the Department of Tourism, the Yelagiri Hills Development and Tourism Promotion Society and the Vellore District Administration.
Besides trekking, you can also launch into other adventure activities like mountaineering, rock-climbing and hang gilding on the hill slopes.
