Tourist Info

Punganoor Lake and Boating & Park 

welcome-img Perhaps the most popular landmark of Yelagiri Hills is the lake. Ask anyone, and they'll tell you where it's located. For want of anything else to do, most visitors to the Hills tend to take the short walk from their lodgings and perhaps, go on a boat ride. The park adjoins the lake and is an ideal outing for kids to play around.

Picnicking isn't allowed inside the premises. Also, there's an entry fee to be paid to enter the lake and park. Worth it, simply because it helps pass time and kids can have fun too.

An artificial Lake sitiated in the center of the Yelagiri Hills having 56.70 Sq.mt. area is called Punganoor Lake. The Yelagiri Hill development and Tourism Promotion Socity maintains, the Park and Boating facility in the lake. Fountain in the center if the lake is an added attraction. Inside the Garden Children Play materials are installed to recreate the kids.

Near the Punganoor Lake, a herbal farm, is maintained by the forest Drepartment With rare herbals used in the Sidda and Ayurvadic medical treatments.

Jalagamparai Waterfalls 

welcome-imgThe River Attaaru, runs through the valleys of Yelagiri Hills, and at the village of Jadaiyanoor, flows over to form the waterfall. It's perhaps the only distant spot from the main town (over 30 kilometres) and fairly frequented by visitors to the Hills.

Larger groups picnic out here, but because of its isolation don't expect too many facilities. Jalagamparai Waterfalls is also an ideal place to go on a day long trek and if you do decide to go there, just make sure you're well-stocked with water and food.

A word of caution: the waterfalls are dependent on the river being full and the river is dependent on substantial rainfall. Yelagiri Hills hasn't any monsoon season of its own; rainfall here is mainly a 'spill-over' of rainfall in nearby Bangalore or Chennai regions. Unless there is rain here, Yelagiri Hills can largely be dry.

Telescope House 

welcome-imgYou come across this when you're driving up the Hills. It's supposed to be open on weekends, but one has always seen a huge padlock at all times.

They say there's a telescope housed inside and from where one can get a good view of places in the distance. But from the naked-eye one can easily get a view of Thirupathur Town or Jolarpet down below; no need for telescopes, really. Besides, it's a waste of time and petrol to drive 2 kilometers to find a padlock at the gates.

Swami Malai 

welcome-imgPossibly 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 the eastern side of the lake, which is about 3 kilometres long and pretty scenic too.

Most visitors to Yelagiri Hills, who have trekking in mind, often climb up Swamimalai. Make sure you have enough water and light snacks before you set-off up the hillock.

Murugan Koilwelcome-img

If perchance the need arises to seek divine intervention drop by at the Murugan temple to offer prayers and invoke blessings from the deity.

For whatever its worth, a trip or even a trek to the holy spot is bound to invigorate energy, health and peace of mind.
