25 Things to Do in Yelagiri 2020 (Starting from ₹350 Only)

It often comes across as a pleasant surprise to learn about the variety of things to do in Yelagiri, a tiny town nestled in Tamil Nadu. The not so popular tourist destination invites tourists to adore its pleasant climate throughout the year; especially visitors from the rest of South India. Thanks to its topography, the hill station has a number of activities for one to indulge in. The mountains like Swamimalai, Javadi or Palamathi make it possible for hiking and trekking in Yelagiri for tourists to enjoy views from atop a hill, while water bodies like the Punganur lake make opportunity for a serene overnight camping experience.

It also offers boating expeditions in the day time. A picnic day with closed ones at Jalagamparai falls - that is considered to be one of the best tourist spots in Yelagiri is a great idea. While the silk farm is yet another place for a day outing; this place offers a rather unique experience of innovative learning by closely watching the entire life cycle of a silkworm and silk producing process.

Things to do list must also certainly include paragliding tours in Yelagiri, as the destination is known for being one of the best tandem flying places in whole of India. It requires one to not excel, or get trained in the sport of paragliding and rather just experience the joy of flying in the air with trained professionals. A few other things to do here in Yelagiri include touring local attractions such as Nature Park which is the go-to place for nature lovers, or finding spiritual peace at temples like Jalagandeeswar, Velavan and Moksha Vimochana which majorly house the deity of Lord Murugan. Moreover, for foodies, trying out the local dishes made of coconut and rice based substances is also one of the most fulfilling things to do on this hill station.
