This is one of the finest place to trek I had done to date in Tamil Nadu. it will take the guts out of you. but its not a dangerous or tricky climb. however, it will kill your power and strength by the time you summit and return. But upon return, you would have attained BLISS, A NEW SELF CONFIDENCE, REJUVENATED FRESHNESS, RENEWED WILL POWER and so on.. definitely you will feel all these from that divine place.
Mount Velliangiri is situated in the western border of Coimbatore, one of the important city of Tamil Nadu.Velliangiri is a part of Western Ghats containing natural herbs and all kinds of natural flora and fauna, can be enjoyed here. Here, on the top of the hill, under a natural cave, which is nearly 6000 feet above the sea level, Lord SHIVA is worshipped in the form of natural (Swayambu) Linga. This Linga is surrounded by adjoining four lingas. So it is named as “PANCHALINGAS”. This cave can be reached after crossing seven hills. During the annual pilgrimage season, devotees in large number, throng this place day & night. The experience which one enjoys here can be compared with the “Amarnath Yatra” of the North. Here too, Lord SHIVA personifies in the form of Linga inside a natural cave. This place is also called a Dhakshina Kailash or Southern Kailash, The pilgrimage season lasts for four months in a year (i.e) from February to May, corresponding to the Tamil month between Masi and Vaikasi.
