Place Description:

Nishani motte is a relatively unknown peak in the Talacauvery/ brahmagiri range. Starting out in rich shola forests and meadows the trail follows a spectacular ridge walk to the summit. It lies between Greater TalaCauvery National Park and Brahmagiri Range. This stretch forms the border between Karnataka & Kerala. The peak offers a spectacular view of the layers of the Brahmagiri range. This is followed by a stay in the forest at the Anti poaching camp/Homestay.
