Peak of View
Among the rolling hills in Kodagu , Nishane motte is a relatively less known peak in the Talacauvery / Bramhmagiri range of coorg. It lies to the south of Bhagamandala - The confluence of Kaveri, Sujyothi and Kannika rivers in a range which extends from Talacauvery in the north to Somamale ( Means hill in local dialect ) in the south in one contiguous stretch without any break, going through peaks like Nishani motte, Tumba male, and Tadiyandamol ( Highest peak in Coorg ). This stretch forms the border between Kannur / Kasargod districts in Kerala and Kodagu district in Karnataka.
Coorg with its misty mountains and dense forests, is often referred to as Scotland of India. 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 reminders 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.
