Yelagiri Hills is one of Tamil Nadu’s hill stations. A steep ghat road with 14 hairpin turns leads to the top of Yelagiri hill. The seventh hairpin curve is noteworthy because it provides a glimpse of the mountain’s slant and the lush vegetation that covers the slope like a carpet. Punganur Lake is a man-made lake with a surface area of 56.706 square metres. Boating on this lake’s waters may be a magical experience.

A children’s park is one of the other attractions. The forest department maintains a Herbal Farm at Punganoor Lake with uncommon herbals used in Siddha and Ayurvedic medicinal therapies. To amuse tourists, a good park is being built in KODAI VIZHA THIDAL.
