Private coffee plantations and spice estates, green gardens with the views of the green valley, memorable sunsets and sunrises, and waterfalls amidst the Western Ghats descending into the Cauvery River; Madikeri is every bit your quintessential hill station. It is also the birthplace of Cauvery River and a cluster of its islets create a gorgeous picnic spot with lush foliage, bamboo groves, sandalwood and teak trees.

The native Kodavas worship the Cauvery River and call themselves its children. They are renowned for their hospitality. Interesting to note is how the traditional Saree is worn here in reverse, and the older women can still be seen wearing it in the traditional Kodagu’s style.
