About Yelagiri Hills, Vellore

If you are looking for an easy and relaxed weekend, Yelagiri Hills is just the destination for you. Among the popular hill stations in India, Yelagiri Hills is surrounded by lush greenery and picturesque landscapes.

For years, the tribal folk have lived in villages (14 in total) that surround the area. Their culture enriches the location immensely. However, getting there can be quite a task considering the 14 hairpin bends that one will need to navigate to get to the top.
