Nishani Motte Coorg Trek | Plan The Unplanned

Friday 10:00 PM - Fabindia · Koramangala · Bangalore

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.

Day 0 – Depart for Nishani Motte

We shall pick you up at 10:00 PM on Friday, from Bangalore.

Get to know your travel mates while the bus heads towards Bhagamandala.

Day 1 – Trek to Nishani Motte Peak

Reach Bhagamandala in the morning. Freshen up at the homestay at Tala Cauvery, and start our trek towards the Nishani Motte peak. The trek route is gorgeous and you’ll surely fall in love with the place. Fill your lungs with the fresh air, and soothe your senses with the bliss that nature has to offer.

After reaching the peak, we shall stay there for some time, relax and click photos till we fall short of space!

Later, we’ll hike down and enjoy the panoramic view of the sunset.

Reaching the homestay, we shall have a bonfire with some fun activities and sharing stories.

Day 2 – Explore Bhagamandala, Visit Harangi Backwaters and Namdroling Monastery

Today, we shall hike along the River Cauvery and sit on the banks for a while, before setting out to explore Bhagamandala.

Located in the Hudgur village near Kushalnagar, Harangi dam makes for an interesting visit for anyone looking for some seclusion and private time with nature. The dam, built across the tributary of River Cauvery has a height of 47 meters and is 846 meters in length and is a popular picnic spot with mesmerising natural settings and a relaxed atmosphere all around. Located at a distance of roughly 36 km from Madikeri, Harangi dam is the first Dam to have been built across River Cauvery.

A soothing environment accompanied by a gentle breeze greets as you enter the area around the dam with its backwaters spread across several acres with small islands in the middle and thick forests on its banks. It almost seems like an ocean, filled to the brim with small hidden trails around the reservoir, where one can take a leisurely walk far away from traffic woes and tourist crowds. The best time to visit the dam is during the monsoon months when the reservoir is completely filled and the floodgates are opened, creating for a picture perfect setting.

Namdroling Monastery in Kushalnagar is considered as one of the largest Buddhist centres dedicated to the study, practice, and preservation of Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhism, this place is totally worth a visit. With 300 residing monks within the premises, you might just get lucky to attend one of their prayer sessions, which is beyond mystical.

The return journey back to Bangalore will begin soon after this visit.
