Yercaud Industrial Visit

Yercaud going students can see sericulture by visiting to various silk farms in Yercaud or they can choose to have their industrial visit in Salem, for more information on Salem kindly visit the Salem section.

This quiet little hill station on the Shevaroy hills of the Eastern Ghats is the only one of its kind in northern Tamil Nadu. While the rest of this region is generally dry, including the predominantly short and rocky hills of the Eastern Ghats, Yercaud presents a welcome contrast with its cool climate where temperature never rises above 30ºC and dip below 13ºC. It is also a less expensive place than either Udhagamandalam or Kodaikkanal.

Coffee and citrus fruits, most notably oranges, are grown in abundance apart from bananas, pears and jack. Scenically, Yercaud is as enchanting and picturesque as the hill stations on the Western Ghats and trekking here can be one of the most pleasurable ways to pass time.

Places for sight-seeing include the Lake, Lady’s Seat, Killiyur Falls, Pagoda Point, Arthur’s Seat, Kaveri Peak and the Shevaroyan temple
