Yelagiri (also known as Elagiri) is a small station that is located right between Jolarpettai and Vaniyambadi. It is a hill station that appeared during British colonial days. The entire Yelagiri area was once an asset of the well known Elagiri Zamindar Family. The Yelagiri Hills later turned into one of the most sought after destinations for adventure sports like rock climbing, paragliding and several others.

Jungle Survival Theme:
Welcome to the jungle! Enter into a tribal world where technology is completely unheard of. In this exciting outdoor activity, it is the man verses the wild where you and your team have to face ordeals that come across in the forest. Bond as a group and use your creativity to come up with solutions to the various problems. The team that can tackle all the obstacles and survive will be heralded as the winning team.
In this activity, each group will be divided into different tribes. You and your team will have to present some innovative ideas and choose your own tribal name, jingle and dance. All of this has to be unique to garner good points.
Get into the tribal zone with props of sticks and leaves. There are several adventurous tasks at hand. Provide for your tribe with the theme of collecting water. The catch is that you and your team will be given a basket with many holes and will have to use leaves to cover it up. Manage the whole thing in such a way that the water does not leak. Either that or you would have to collect water with a bamboo stick. Other activities include starting a fire using old techniques and hunting for food with a game of archery. You will also have to find shelter and build it with the materials that are provided. Engage in Scavenger Hunt where the utensils will be hidden across. You and your group will have to scout for them. Somewhere along the way, a lion is on the prowl and you have to undertake Jumaring (rope climbing activity). Also, one of your tribesmen is injured. The team has to make a stretcher with what is provided and will have to carry him back on top of it.
The team that manages to complete all of these activities successfully at the earliest will be titled the winner.
