As a hill station, the town has cold, pleasant temperatures throughout the year. Yelagiri is also somewhat of a respite from the hot, sometimes unbearable temperatures of most of the cities in the south. Owing to its latitude, it never really gets too hot. The winters aren't very chilly either. So going to Yelagiri at anytime is just as much fun. Although, the summers might seem to be a good time to visit Yelagiri, the winter months of November to February are ideal for witnessing the true colours of the hill station and all that it has to offer, but if you want to see its Summer Festival, then May and June is the time to go.

A picturesque spot, Yelagiri is surrounded by orchards, rose-gardens and green valleys. The summer festival holds events such as flower shows, dog shows, and a marathon.
November - February
Located in a valley, the trek to the Jalagamparai falls can be a bit daunting. However, upon reaching the location it is all worth it. The best time to visit is from November-Feb as it gushes with water at this time. Avoid visiting in summers specially around April as there is a good chance it will be dry.
