Landscapes of Chikmagalur district, Karnataka

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
Chikmagalur district in Karnataka is just a few hours from state capital Bengaluru and has lots of attractions to offer. Mullayyanagiri is Karnataka's highest peak, there's Seethalayyana giri,  Manikyadhara falls, Kemmnnugundi, Habbe falls, Mahatma Gandhi park, Kalhatti falls, lots of plantations & homestays and much more. However, focus of this post is Chikmagalur's interesting landscapes, which are very photogenic. These were clicked in December. I reckon these will be more green and eye catching post rainy season.
