Tadiyandamol means highest point in Kodava language, this peak is the highest one in the Coorg district situated near Virajpet about a 30kms away on the way to Napoklu, Bhagamandala. This peak just adjacent to the Makutta forest. On the way you also get a old palace called ‘Nalku Naadu Aramane’. Neatly stacked layers of hills align one behind the other, extending to the horizon and gently merging into the blue sky. At a height 1740m, Tadiyandamol is the second highest peak in Karnataka. The peak belongs to the group of taller peaks between Himalayas in the north and Nilgiris in the South. This range experiences a salubrious climate through out the year. Elephants, bison, tigers, wild cats, and variety of birds habitat the thick vegetation. Plenty of waterfalls and natural springs adorn the valleys. The flora & fauna of Coorg add to the beauty of the valley. Coorg, which is aptly termed as the Scotland of India and as the Kashmir of Karnataka as the place is famous for its evergreen forests, lush green valleys, misty hills, sprawling coffee plantations, tea estates, orange groves, lofty peaks and fast flowing streams.
