The trail to Nishani Motte is a lesser-known trail in Coorg. Starting out in rich shola forests and meadows the trail follows an impressive ridge walk to the summit. 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. This varied combination, makes Nishani Motte an ideal weekend trek out of Bangalore.
