Madikeri

Madikeri is the picturesque capital of Kodagu (also called Coorg). It is the land of coffee, cardamom, colonels, and the River Cauvery. The capital of Kodagu District is located in a beautiful hilly setting surrounded by the forested slopes of the Western Ghats. Here, time seems to have stopped. Dotted with a cluster of red-roofed dwellings and a bustling bazaar, the town, situated at an elevation of 1525m, has a charming old-world look. Madikeri provides access to some excellent picnic spots too.
