This picturesque tourist spot is situated on the south eastern edge of Karnataka. It is at a height of 5091 ft and serves as a link between the Eastern Ghats and the Western Ghats. Drained by the Cauvery and Kapila rivers, BR Hills is a tourist’s paradise.

The diversity of the vegetation is mind blowing. It has evergreen, deciduous, dry and scrub and even high-altitude vegetation. Tourists can expect to come across some rare plants and trees.

The rich vegetation of BR Hills in turn supports a wide variety of fauna. There are a lot of different types of animals roaming lazily through the forests of the region. The place is also home to a large number of exotic birds. Tourists can expect to have a great holiday sighting the different animals and birds they had only heard of!

This place is inhabited by the Soliga tribe. They are a semi-nomadic tribe and live in the interiors of the region. They engage in shifting cultivation and keep moving from one place to the other within the forest. Tourists can buy the many local crafts that they sell.

There is a coffee estate in the region which was started by a foreigner. Tourists can definitely pay a visit to this site. Another tourist spot in the area is the Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple dedicated to Lord Ranganatha. There is a car festival of the deity held every year. Pilgrims come from far off places to take part in the festival.

BR Hills, with its pleasant ambience makes for an ideal tourist destination.
