to Nishani motte, Coorg & Visit to Abbey Falls - [24th - 25th March 2012]-
Registration is on
Nishani motte is a relatively unknown peak (yet!) in the talacauvery / branhmagiri range. It lies to the south of Bhagamandala in arange which extends from Talacauvery in the north to Somamale in the south in one contiguous stretch without any break, going through peaks like Nishani motte, Tumba male, and Tadiyandamol. This stretch forms the border between Kannur / Kasargod districts in Kerala and Kodagu district in Karnataka. Last year's attempt to get to Nishani motte landed us in Nishani betta (in a range north of Bhagamandala), and in all sorts of trouble with forest department due to a mining dispute in that area.
Coorg is now a flourishing agricultural center. With its misty mountains and dense forests, Coorg seems like a little corner of England to the British. They left behind a legacy, which is still an important source of national wealth. The well laid coffee plantations in Coorg account for almost half of Karnataka's coffee production. And Karnataka continues to be India's largest producer of coffee. Other remainders of the colonial past are the spacious estate bungalows, many of which still have British names and the meandering roads that wind through the district.
