The hill station dates back to the British colonial days."The Whole of Yelagiri was once the private property of the Yelagiri Zamindar Family. It was taken over by the government of India during the Early 1950s. The house of the Yelagiri Zamindars still exists in Reddiyur."Location And OverviewThe Yelagiri hill station is not as developed as other hill stations in Tamil Nadu like Ooty or Kodaikanal.

Petrol pumps are sufficient, making travel convenient and easy.Yelagiri is one of the famous places for trekkers in India. The hill station is located at a height of 1410.6 meters above sea level.
