  • Very close to Lady's Seat, but slightly higher. It's hidden inside the Horticultural Department park or whatever it's called. 30 bucks per person is the entry fee - 50 more if you have a camera. The g...  more »

  • Cleaner than the Lady's seat, it is at a higher altitude than the Lady's seat too. There is an admission and parking fee to get here (Rs. 30 per person for admission), so very little crowd. There are not many food vendors or hawkers here, unlike Lady's seat. The views are great, breath taking one could say but one could get similar views in the vicinity too. There is a small garden around this place, which is pretty well maintained. Worth a visit only if one has time to spare
  • Gents seat as the name suggests, it's a Classic view point in Yercaud. It's more beautiful than the ladies seat actually. The gents seat is located slightly higher in altitude than the ladies seat on top of a small cliff. One needs to pay a sum of 30 rs to get there. The gents seat welcomes us with a beautiful garden up front which as been recently established by the forest authorities of government of Tamil nadu. One can take memorable pictures in the garden. As the road climbs we get a splendid view of the gents seat. Believe me it's worth the visit. There's not so much of a crowd as one needs to pay money to get here so it's pretty neat, unlike the ladies seat where there is garbage and plastics and food stuffs thrown everywhere by the tourists and the local salespeople. There is a flight of stairs which takes you to the gents seat. One can also take their vehicle till the top of the cliff. The roads circle the small cliff and it's really well maintained. The gents seat gives our eyes the beautiful landscapes and the land terrain .
  • Good view. Not very well maintained (we went in April 2017). Situated between lady's seat and children's seat, both of which are a lot better. Go during the sunset, there's a good breeze and you can spend peaceful time here. Also there's provision for you to drive up there and park.
  • # A great place to visit! # Breathtaking Panoramic View! # Excellent for photos, Selfies, Panorama shots, Not maintained well - tourists also to be blamed; Govt is putting their efforts. Requests all the guests / tourists to keep the environment clean!
  • Fresh air and good weather, not a crowded tourist place. need to park vehicle and need to climb up to spot, tried to make it as garden but I think as less income from the place they stopped the work. Don't know why its called Gents seat. One or two food hawkers.
