  • Best to visit on a week day as the approach road is narrow and you dont wanna get caught in jams. The place is crying out for regular maintenance and I really wish these educated 'idiots' care for a c...  more »
  • Good location to see sunset; stay until after sunset to see salem light up; will be able to see the plains in the valley between the hills.

  • A very good view point not yet commercialised but maintenance is pathetic. The whole place is dirty, lack of hygiene and absolutely no local police for security. It was rather unfortunate. The place offers nice view of the town. We were lucky to see sunrise, it was excellent and extremely satisfying. If you overlook negatives, it is a place to visit for good view. Make sure weather is good before you start your journey. Overall a place with huge potential but not maintained at all....
  • I have no clue how this place is number three in things to do. It should not even make it to this list. The approach road is small and has limited parking slots. Jams along that road are pretty frequent. The point has a few small shops selling corn cobs and fruit salads. More than anything, it's a disgusting filthy dump yard. The place has been destroyed beyond any help, thanks to 'educated’ Indian traveller. He will ensure to spread the utmost amount of filth in a limited span of time. We encountered people throwing all sorts of waste from the viewing point into the valley and grounds all around. Even the floor of the viewing point was soiled with fruits to such an extent that the rubber sole of my shoes was sticking to the floor. The apathy of the people responsible for this dump was breathtaking. I was embarrassed as a tourist and an Indian.
  • Very messy and no order even in parking. This place is purely to take selfies and post on Instagram. You can grasp the birds eye view of Salem Town and neighborhood and sister hills of yercaud.
  • Nice place. Parking and taking out vehicles out of parking lot is bit crapy. Otherwise great place to spend your evening watching the sunset.
  • A good place for visiting top in yercaud. But cleanness is not maintained and due to it and so cozy place...
