“Different View”

Karadiyur View Point
Ranked #5 of 24 things to do in Yercaud
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Yercaud from almost all the view points you get a look at the very same view, nothing much diffrent. This was the only view point which had given a complete unique view. You have to park your vehicle and walk for almost a 1.5 KM to reach this place. As this route is quite deserted its advisable to carry a torch in case you heading late evening or carry eatable or water at all other times as its a long walk. But its worth it investing time n effort in this walk.

A very good view point but very far from Main Road as you have to walk for nearly 20 minutes to reach there by walk as vehicle unless it is a bigger one cannot go through the road

It's a good view point. Still you may give it a miss if you are short of time. Have to be careful about the route as you may get lost without proper directions. However roads are OK.

We wnet there at around 6 PM when it was getting dark. Later we felt that we made a mistake of going there.

This is located toward Naganur after Sri Chakra Maha Meru Temple. The road is in good condition and the drive was memorable. One need to park the car on the main road, and then walk for 1.5-2 KM to arrive at the view point.

The path to the view point is not well maintained and dirty. I felt that the approach road to the view point is not safe for ladies. However the view is really good.

Go there at your own risk.

The view from the watchtower here is worth the 0.5 km hike off the main road.

While being really good, the view itself isn't extraordinarily different from many other places in the hills of South India.
However, this is off the beaten track and so far quieter than most places. Aim to reach early in the morning and you could have the place to yourself.

Be advised: no tourist friendly facilities within a km of this place.
