Yercaud Lake - Salem India

When one's heart yearns for a cool respite, however brief, one thinks longingly of cool breezes, picturesque locales, the golden palms and a quiet place where one can make escape to, then look no futher! Come to the Yercaud Lake, a pictorial pool surrounded by gardens and well-wooded areas. Boating in the cold waters of the lake is a most pleasant experience. In the centre of the lake is an island that is covered by an over bridge to the mainland. The island is home to a couple of deer and peacocks. One could go around the fenced island if one doesn't mind getting scratched by some bushes and getting one's leg into a little dirt. There is a beautiful garden called "The Anna Park" near the lake. The garden is well groomed and best seen during the month of May, when the Summer Festival is organised and the funds are rolling in for the local authorities. At other times as well, it is worth a visit. Boating Facilities At The Lake One can avail of the boating facilities available at the lake. Boats come in two options. Paddling ones for a couple or four and the other type where there is a guy rowing it for you as you relax. Boating in the cold water of the lake is enhancing as well as refreshing.
