Chikmanglur is a beautiful town and gets its unique
name from the Kannada. (ikamargalairu) which means ‘younger daughter’s town.
Once you get here you will be lost in the fascinating climate. If you love
having coffee, then you can once try the coffee cultivated here with the fresh
coffee beans coming from the nearby towns of state Karnataka. It is a gorgeous
and a clean place and surprising being a small town its population recorded by
the census is one hundred eighteen thousand four ninety-eight of which
fifty-one percent of are female couple with, their average literacy rate is
seventy-two percent which is greater than the national average.
In the small district of Chikmanglur, are number of
places which can make anybody attracted to come here. Most of the tourists to
come from all over the world. Tourists come here to relax and enjoy the calm
environment and visit wonderful hill stations. Kuduremukh is one of the most
popular place visited by the tourists, and it’s meaning is ‘Horse faced’. It is

kilometre, after that you need to trek to the falls.
