Entertainment

Once you have arrived, we have the perfect recipe for a relaxing vacation! First choose your favorite activity from a list including trekking, biking, boating, sightseeing or just plain relaxing.
 
 
Yelagiri has some interesting trekking routes with Swamimalai topping the list. However a cool stroll or ride through the quaint villages is a definite boost to your health. Well paved roads connecting the villages allow one a glimpse of the rustic lifestyle of the tribes.
 
The government's effort to put Yelagiri on the tourist map has paid off. Apart from Punganoor lake and boat house, there is yet another lake at Nilaoor, where you can go boating. The lakes are surrounded by gardens and a children's park. Yelagiri's boast is 'The Nature Park'. Sprawling over 9 acres are beautiful gardens, fountains, a waterfall, children's park and a musical fountain.
 
Religion and religious ceremonies take precedence in the lives of the tribes. This is evident from the many temples seen, one in each of the 14 villages. However, the Murugan, Sivan and Perumal temples are popular.
 
The sericulture farm run by the government is yet another interesting spot to visit in Mangalam. Jalagamparai Waterfalls, 24 kms from Jolarpet junction, (34 Kms from Yelagiri) is an ideal spot for a day's picnic. The water at the falls depends largely on Yelagiri's rainfall. So enquire first before heading off to the waterfalls.
 
And if you are not quite up to outdoor activity, you can play a few games like chess, caroms, darts, a little shuttle, volley ball or cricket out on your lawn or even a game of table tennis. Children have a play area with a swing, slide and sea saw.
