Kotagiri is a smallest and oldest hill station, nestled in the lap of Nilgiri Hills bounded by surroundings that exhibits peace and tranquility. A hill town that was first noticed by the British as their summer home away from the heat of plains, today, it is again gaining popularity among tourists.
In fact, what we see today of the town is nothing but a pure reflection of the glorious past of the British Raj and Kota tribe who inhabited this place in past and has been reduced to a small number at present. Dictated by pleasant weather condition throughout the year, Kotagiri is packed with lush green environs and clean and fresh air. Once served as a site of coffee plantation, today the town is a tea plantation covering a huge area of 30,000 acres. With an essence of charm and magic, the place holds several mystifying secrets of unexplored nature and beauty waiting to be uncovered.
