Gent’s Seat, Yercaud

Gent’s Seat, Yercaud
It is a nice view point and located at a distance of 1 km from ladies seat. There is an entrance fee for this place. From here Children’s seat is a short walk. Rose garden is located at a walkable distance from this view point. Entrance fee is RS.30/-




This is a cluster of Rocks on the South West of the Yercaud hills overlooking the Ghat road and the town of Salem to the South. There is a natural rock formation in the form of a seat where reportedly a white English Lady of yester years spent her evenings viewing the magnificent panorama before one’s eyes.




There is a sheer drop of about 200 feet at this point into a private estate in the valley below. There is a manmade viewing tower with Telescopes. One can see the magnesite deposits on the plains and on clear days a view of Mettur Dam. One should not miss the night view of the Salem town with millions of twinkling lights.




On the right of Lady’s Seat are Sterling Resorts, Gents Seat and Childrens Seat. There is a mini park and it is a breath taking spot for a picnic. It is located at a distance of 2 kms from Yercaud Town.
