Nishani Motte, Coorg Overview

Located in the district of Galibeedu, 12 km from Madikeri near Coorg, Nishani Motte is a relatively unknown peak in Karnataka. Known for its scintillating views of misty mountains, green forest cover, lush green open meadows and rare species of flora and fauna, the place is also a popular trekking destination amidst the avid trekkers and adventure enthusiasts. Although the initial trekking trail is not steep and is an easy climb but the pathway is laced with leeches, snakes and other animals. You will also spot elephant footprints and lots of dry twigs and plants.

The final leg of the trek is however very steep. And the pathway leading to the top is also not very well marked. It is advisable to perform this activity in the company of a guide and to avoid climbing up at nights or after dark.
