Chikmagalur ( Chikkamagaluru )

The journey to the highest peak in Karnataka is so engaging that one forgets to be scared - when there is reason to be afraid, very afraid. The roads are tricky, yes, but getting to the top is worth the while. Just like the 10 km trek to the gorgeous Habe Falls is - its almost impossible by vehicle and is inaccessible in the monsoons. Despite all that coffee, Chikmagalur is far from a gracious host. You need to work hard to win her affections. Well, its not for nothing Chikmagalur was a princess dowry. When King Rugmagada Rayas younger daughter was given away in marriage, she brought with her a pretty portion of the Western Ghats as her dowry, thus giving the place its name - Chikka-magal-uru or Younger Daughter's Village. Long treks, safaris and breathing plenty of fresh, coffee-scented air - Chikmagalur makes you feel so good that you want to throw your arms around the world.

 Chikmagalur is at an elevation of 1090 meters (3,400 feet) and the hill stations around Chikmagalur are famous summer retreats since they remain cool even during summers. The temperature of the city varies from 11-20 °C during winter to 25-32 °C during summer.
