Nishani Motte is an unadulterated treat to the eyes. It’s a lesser known mountain peak of Talacauvery Range in Coorg, which is otherwise called the Scotland of India.
This approximately 15 km moderate-trek starts from Bhagamandala Forest range (around 284 km from Bangalore) and then treading through the paddy fields, to the coffee estate, and into the Wildlife Reserve, it finally leads towards summiting the hilltop.
Coorg is also famous for Coffee production, it’s the second largest place for coffee production after Sakleshpur in Karnataka, and you can thoroughly enjoy the view of the stretches of the hills from here.
The monsoon raises the difficulty level as the pathway gets muddy, filled with leeches and makes it difficult to climb. The trail towards the end is very steep, almost vertical and thus, adding a tinge of adventure to make it up to the crest. And there the view would sweep you off the ground.
Magnificent view of mountain ranges of Karnataka and Kerala can be seen from here, with the river Cauvery flowing, perfecting the scenery. It’s a view that’ll surely strike a chord in your heart and make a mark on your mind.
