Lady's Seat, Yercaud

Lady's Seat, Yercaud
Lady's Seat, Gent's Seat and Children's Seat, located to the south-west of Shevaroy Hill, are the names given to a group of rocks located on the Yercaud Hills. These are present in the form of a seat, which overlooks the Salem town and Ghat road. The Lady' Seat has derived its name from a set of rocks made naturally.

In addition, the place also houses a viewing tower, which is equipped with a telescope so as to enjoy the beautiful view of Mettur Dam and Salem town. This viewing tower is open for visitors only during the day time. Tourists can have a panoramic view of the plains below through the telescope mounted at the Lady's seat.

 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.

The best time to spot the river is from 300 p.m. onwards when the sun rays reflect off the river waters. There is a steep diving point of 200 feet. It is located in the south west of Shevaroy hills and projecting towards the plains of Salem city. One can witness the beauty of entire Salem city region and its plains in a bird view angle. This place has a viewing tower facility with a telescope. One can spot even a small objects using telescope.

One of the best views that Yercaud promises. You can enjoy the panoramic view of the ghats and all the distant vehicles dwindling their way in and out of trees along the winding Ghat road. It surely is a breath-taking view.
