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.
One of the best ways to explore the region is by undertaking a trekking expedition. Along the way, you might meet some furry friends (monkeys). If trekking isn’t your idea of fun, going boating on the Punganur Lake is a good option.
