    Yelagiri an emerging weekend destination

    Gone are the days when this little virgin hill station popularly known as ‘ The Poor Man’s Ootty’ needed an introduction. Situated in Vellore Dt, TN, 220 Kms from Chennai and 150 kms from Bangalore, today this little hill has become the favorite weekend destination of the Bangaloreans and Chennaites, thanks to the ‘Golden Quadrilateral’ highway network between Chennai and Bangalore that is further developing into a six lane super highway.
    Just deviate from this highway at Vaniyambadi and drive up to Ponneri from where the ghat road ( 17 Kms from Vaniyambadi) with 14 hairpin bends leads you to the beautiful, unexploited nature … Yelagiri.

    Swamimalai Trek

    The highest peak around and the best place to go on a lovely trek is Swamimalai. It's an easy trek along a muddy path starting from Mangalam village. It is about 3 kilometers long and pretty scenic too. Most visitors to Yelagiri Hills, who have trekking in mind, often climb up Swamimalai.
