For those caffeine lovers, Chikmagalur is the right place to go to as it has some of the best coffee plantations in the country. People visit the town not just to enjoy the picturesque view but also to relish the taste of coffee. Traveling by the ghat roads may be a pain to many but it is worth the while as you reach the highest peak of Karnataka. Getting to Habe Falls is another needle in the hole as it is impossible to travel by vehicle especially during the monsoon season. The place was named when a famous king’s younger daughter brought with her a large portion of the Western Ghats as dowry after marriage and hence the name Chikka-magal-uru meaning Younger Daughter’s Village.
