Traveling only 9 minutes away from Yercaud The Raintree Resorts will land us back to History, as this is the place where the first coffee plantation of India commenced during the British regime. The Grange is one of the oldest buildings in the town built in 1820 by M.D. Cockburn, the man who is known as the father of Yercaud. Home to orange, jackfruit, berry, guava, apple and spice plantations, the Grange also has a wide capacity to store large quantities of provisions, again dating back to History where it is revealed to play a very active role during the famous Sepoy Mutiny of 1857, and was stocked with ramparts, gun parts and cannons.
The striking Kiliyur Falls in the Servaroyan hill range of the Eastern Ghats in Tamil Nadu state is only 15 kms away from Yercaud The Raintree Resorts. The sole reason behind the formation of Kiliyur Falls is the overflowing waters of Yercaud Lake. This waterfall makes its way to Kiliyur Valley from a height of 300 feet. The water level of Kiliyur Falls rises during monsoon season, thus making it more beautiful and attractive for tourists, outings, picnics, etc. Visitors have to take a 2 km long trek, around 200 steep steps to reach the waterfall. An hour long trek from the nearest road point will lead us towards the bottom of the falls.
