We had planned for a two days trip to Yelagiri from Bangalore over the weekend. We started around 8 AM in the morning from our residence at Harlur Road, Bangalore and had breakfast at A2B restaurant before Krishnagiri. The traffic was pretty decent and we managed to keep up our speed. We reached Yelagiri around 11:30 AM. The driving experience... More

Its a nice place for a quick weekend getaway. Its not too commercial and hence peaceful. Good for family, friends. The couple of trekking points are interesting. The drive up and down is exciting due the large number of hair pin bends in a short distance.

It was very crowded may be because of weekend. I wish this place is maintained more neat and clean. I saw people sitting and drinking... More

The place in itself might not be anything compared to Ooty or Coorg, but the ride to Yelagiri in itself is awesome. You need to leave early at around 4am from Bengaluru, to be lucky enough to encounter the dense fog!

This is a hyped location and there is nothing much to see. Only the route up the hill is good. On top of the hill there is nothing much to see compared to other hill stations. The artificial lake is very small. You can as well go for boating in ulsoor lake than coming all the way from Bangalore. There... More

Located close to Bangalore and one of the get always from the hustle bustle of Bangalore . The road leading to Yelagiri is very well maintained. Temperatures also not high and the road leading to Yelagiri has around 20 hair pin bends .. a decent place if all your wish list within Karnataka is finished

We visited Yelagiri from Bangalore for a day trip. Started at 5 am from Whitefield and managed to reach by 8.15 even with a 30 min break at the Mc D near Krishnagiri. Boating at the man made lake was a good experience. Went for a trek up the hill. I am not a trek person but managed to reach... More
