Nice drive. Use GPS. Definitely ask locals for guidance may get list. Check Google for tips. If going in morning go first via manjakottai for sunrise view and if evening plan to be at servarayan temple by 5 pm.

The loop rood is very amazing and its perfect place to visit in the early morning hours. The road is narrow. Must visit place in Yercaud.

the loop road is very nice. it should be preferably covered in the early morning and likely by bike since the road is a bit narrow. i enjoyed a lot the loop road it took me total 2 hours to cover 32 km.

If you are a good driver you can. There are few hairpin bends but are not as dangerous as in Tirupathi.
Hi, can we get mobile signals enroute?, since many people mention that following the exact route is difficult at times, Google map may be handy, but needs mobile signals..

I agree the signal is weak and not reliable. However the loop road is pretty straight and simple and when in doubt you always have the shopkeepers who are more than ready to help.

Response from mathewsmj | Reviewed this property |
No. It is different route. Lady's seat and Gent's seat are near rose garden. It is almost 3 km from Lake. Lake is in Yercaud town.
