Nestled in the Baba Budan hills, Chikmagalur is a calm, serene town full of scenic surprises - hills, valleys, streams and snow-white coffee blossoms. Situated 251 kms from Bangalore, Chikmagalur is a trekker's delight, with its rugged mountain trails. Coffee was introduced into India through the Chikmagalur district when the first coffee crop was grown in the Baba Budan Giri Hills during 1670 AD. The prime tourist attractions include: Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary (Muthodi), Kallathagiri Water Falls, Hebbe Falls, Kudremukh, Kemmanagundi etc.
