We planned for a short trip from Bangalore to Yercaud during the last week of January 2016. There were four of us and we hired an Innova for the journey. The trip started from Bangalore at around 1 pm. We took the NH7 road and views were simply mesmerizing. Lush green fields, small hills and smooth road will make your heart sing with joy. There are around 4 toll gates on the way to Yercaud and hence keep ready change. The last 20 KM road near Yercaud boasts of 20 amazing hairpin bends. The beauty of nature is really on display here. After a 5.5 hours ride we reached our destination.
