Yercaud Lake

Yercaud Lake is located at the heart of Yercaud and is its primary attraction. The whole town of Yercaud is surrounded around this lake. The lake is surrounded by both commercial shops and restaurants, and natural and artificial green surroundings.


A boat house is located where a visitor could hire a pedal boat and boat across the lake. Boating on the peaceful and calm Yercaud lake is very refreshing. The surrounding green hills adds to the beauty of the lake. The lake also has a moving water fountain that keeps the visitors engaged. You can see the people who are boating running after the moving fountain, and take a splash under it.


Next to the boat house, there is a small but well maintained garden that acts as a picnic spot for several visitors. The garden has few attractions for the kids. There is also a mini bird house that has a collection of few birds that are caged.




The other side of the lake has a nice and well maintained park from which you can get a glimpse of the lake as well as the surrounding hills.
