The Shevroyan Hills, beautiful as they are, keep their greatest treasure hidden: A hill station that commands your attention with its splendour, bursting with life – from its secretive birds to its rocky creeks.

ACTIVITIES AT YERCAUD
Camping in the open and waking up at dawn to the loud chorus of birds, can rejuvenate the jaded soul of a city dweller.
Nothing brings family and friends together like pitching a tent and sitting around a bonfire as the smells of the barbeque waft to you.
Gaze into the embers of a campfire, trading jokes and tales in the magic hours of dusk.
Watching the stars come out one by one, laughter mingling with reminiscences: these are what memories are made of.
As the songs, the stories and the laughter die down with the fire, commune with the night, with fireflies and moonlight adding a new dimension to the darkness.
Kitchen on Call will keep you satisfied with simple, nourishing and delicious food as you camp under a canopy of stars. The sound of crickets will lull you to sleep and the first rays of sunlight will nudge their way into your sleeping bag.
With a background of birdsong, you can greet the morning with a joy so profound, that you will instantly feel recharged.

The Shevaroy Hills are not for the faint of heart – they do not reveal their secrets to the unadventurous. I’ve been exploring these hills for years and still I come across wonders that take my breath away. Hidden valleys and views so beautiful you’re left with awe. Every season sees the hills wearing a different shade of green, not to mention the wild flowers and birds. Yercaud is filled with a “life” that I find rejuvenate me.
I have three kinds of treks:
Rare – for those chasing the adrenal rush of taking the leap and coming out the other side breathless but satisfied.
Medium rare – for those interested in the challenge of adventure and the increased heart rate that comes with being elated.
Well done – for those who just want a one-on-one with the mountains, those searching for a conversation with nature.
But all my treks have the ingredients of the soul. I want you to know the importance of family, the strength of the bonds we make as people, I want to show you that life is about the journey, not the destination. I believe that my treks are a learning experience; I want you to know Yercaud too.
Several years ago, we decided to quit the mad rush of Bangalore for the peace of Yercaud. The one clear vision we had was that we wanted to bring up our children in an environment of unconditional love and spiritual values, unfettered by the materialistic ideals of city life. With no clear plans, we let love and faith lead the way. The transition was, to say the least, difficult. Over the years, we have never regretted our decision and when we hear friends or acquaintances wish aloud that they could quit the rat race, we smile to ourselves and say with quiet satisfaction, "We did!'
We now grow coffee, pepper and mango, along with several other fruit trees. Patsy uses her culinary passion for running Kitchen on Call while my zeal for the outdoors fuels trekking and camping adventures for anybody who wants to travel the road less travelled.
