      Out of the 3 places u mentioned above, Yercaud is still I need to visit. Ooty and Kodai I have come there a few times and love the place very much. I love Kodai, the more. Usually my plan is after visiting Palani, just go to Kodai from there and that journey through the ghat area is superb. Till now I have not visited Yercaud and wish to cover that too soon. I love Tamil Nadu very well. Nice place and nice people. I know a little bit Tamil to write and read also. My sister is in Trichy. So I have come in Trichy several times. Her daughter is in Kovai. Soon I will write a hub on Tamil Nadu. Dear, please keep on writing more and I wish you all the best. Thank you for sharing your knowledge here.
