One of the least known, but amongst the best hill stations in southern India. Traveller has to tour the coffee region of Chikmagalur which is nested in the Malnad area of Karnataka largely forested and hilly region of Heavy rainfall. The unrivalled scenic beauty, thick green valleys, coffee plantations, silver oak wood forests & magnificent mountain ranges presents the traveller to enjoy the luxury of nature. This region is also the birth place of Indian coffee industry and the cradle of the powerful Hoysala Dynasty.

This scenic coffee town takes its name from the word Chikkamagaluru which in kannada means “younger Daughter’s Town”. Legend has it that this part of the district was presented by a prominent local chieftain to his younger daughter as dowry. Circa 1600 A.D Shah Jamaal Allah Magatabi (later known as Baba Budan) on the return from his pilgrimage to Mecca, planted the coffee seeds he brought back from Yemen around his mountains abode on the Chandradhrona Parvattha; and thus was born the coffee industry in India.
