Nature attracts all our five senses. Sight of beautiful mountains, sea, sunrise, sunset and waterfalls. Fragrance of flowers and petrichor (smell of the mud after the first rain), sound of the chirping birds, waves hitting the shore and the blowing wind. Feel of the breeze swishing your hair, rain drops falling on your palms, smooth petals of flowers delight to the taste buds by the seasonal fruits and the sweet nectar of the tropical flowers.

The Beauty of CHIKKAMAGALUR
Chikkamaglur the “coffee land” is a small hilly town in the Western Ghats. Chikmagalur City takes its name from the word “Chikkamagala Uru” which literally means younger daughter’s town (in Kannada). It is said to have been given as a dowry to the younger daughter of Rukmangada, the legendary chief of Sakrepatna. Another part of the town bestowed on the elder daughter is known as Hiremagalur. Carved against a mountainous canvas this beautiful Malnad district is full of surprises. The hill stations, the waterfalls, the historical temples, trekking places and the wildlife sanctuaries make this region a tourist paradise.
Nature plays a major role and has a profound impact on the lives of all us; it can be a friend or a foe. From the time a being comes into existence, it almost immediately, becomes aware of the necessary connection with the outside world. The bond between man and nature is expected, as both are interlinked with each other. This bond is necessary for both existence and sanity. Nature determines many aspects of one’s life, even ones of life and death. The conflicts that the environment provides enable man to become stronger and he triumphs or fails at daily struggles.
