Yeoor has 6 villages and houses a population of around 3000. The population literacy is low but improving with time. The people living and working in Yeoor come from many different linguistic groups of India. Since the majority of the village population comprises Adivasis, cutting wood and selling regional fruits is the main source of income. The lowest possible income in one of these villages could be in the range of Rs. 4000 to Rs. 6000 per annum. Also growing rice and fishing (in the small dam nearby) are the other occupations of the villagers.

An Indian Air Force Station is located in the area. You are not allowed to enter it but one can only view it from outside. There are many bungalows owned by wealthy peoples and ministers in the yeoor hills. You may also see many types of trees such as bamboo, boar, apple, mango, red pine, amla, Nilgiri, black current, tamarind, turmeric, lotus, Jamun & many other whose name I also do not know. Forwarding ahead we finally reached the yeoor village which is located in the middle of our journey. You can take a rest for a time near to the shop available in the village. You can get all the eatery stuff.
