Yercaud...The poor man's Ooty

The weekend after the Skandgiri trek, me n my new friends went for an impromptu trip to Yercaud. Its called a poor man's Ooty. 7 bikes, 14 people set forth to conquer the NH7 @ 5 a.m Saturday morning. That drive was lovely the highway is awesome to drive on. unfortunately I wasn't driving :(. Anyway we reached Yercaud at about noon. We checked into our hotel and set off to explore the town.
What we discovered was that there was only one decent restaurant there and the service there was slower than a snail walking towards its own grave. we ordered for 4 Long Island Tea and after a wait of about an hour he brings only 3. Meanwhile our host for the day Vikrant asked for water and poor guy, didn't get even after the paid the bill.
We were an optimistic bunch and landed up for breakfast at 9 in the morning again at the same hotel. We left the hotel at 11:30, that is the kind of service we got again. We actually contemplated canceling the breakfast order and ordering lunch directly. after that we vowed to have lunch somewhere else.
Anyway here is some information about Munnar. Not really a place to sightsee but decent enough a place to go with friends, especially on bikes. The ride back got tiring as we started late and reached bangalore around 4 in the morning. Also it rained and we had to take a break as visibility was low.
