Yercaud is a charming hill station in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, nestled within the Eastern Ghats. Yercaud and its hills serve as a relaxing hilly retreat for travellers of all kinds. Surrounded by hills, valleys, abundant wildlife and calming vibes, it is truly a hidden “Jewel of the South”.
Picture yourself watching countless vibrant kites turn the sky into an endless canvas. A silhouette speckled with vibrant splashes of colour as kites of all colours, shapes, and sizes shoot over the azure blue.

Makar Sankranti is a major harvest festival observed by Hindus throughout India that occurs in the month of January. Makar Sankranti is observed differently around the country, and the cultural importance of the holiday varies geographically, with each commemorating the new harvest season in its unique style.
