Foggy Morning at Yercaud

Foggy Morning at Yercaud

Pic was taken early in the morning when there was a blanket of fog over the mountains. This was snapped by a friend who had been to Yercaud alongwith other friends and they did not take me along with them!!! 👿

Yercaud, popularly known hill station near Salem, Tamil Nadu, India in the Servarayan range of hills (anglicized as Shevaroys) in the Eastern Ghats. It is at an altitude of 1,500 metres (4,920 feet) from mean sea level. The town gets its name from the lake located at its center – in Tamil “Yeri” means “lake” and “Kaadu” means “forest”. Yercaud is known for coffee plantations and orange groves. It also has an orchidarium run by the Botanical Survey of India.

The highest point in Yercaud is the Servarayan temple, which is situated at a height of 5326 feet. Hence the Yercaud hill area is called Shevaroy Hills. [Wikipedia]
