Elephant Tooth Rocks – A Trek in the wild – exclusively for adventurers
Apart from sightseeing, the main entertainment of this rocky spot is trekking. The larger rock is easy to climb up while not at all easy to descend. Hence, tourists who love adventurous trekking often show great interest to visit this location. A whole day up and down trekking is sufficient to climb up and get down the elevated landscape sight. Since the rocky material is soft in places, there are chances it might rumble due to the pressure from the feet of the climbers. Alternatively one can trek down to the plains and catch a bus to return to Yercaud. This place can be accessed less than an hours duration and from there another few minutes to the ghat road. From this location visitors can board buses either to Yercaud or Salem.
