A place holding the prestigious honors of being the largest producer of sweetest honey in South-east Asia, Kakkabe is a picturesque little village in Karnataka's Western Ghats. It's a beautiful hill station lying under the silhouette of Thadiyendamol peak, in the midst of densely populated rain forest and coffee plantations.

Kakkabe is noted for its natural scenic beauty. On a clear day, one can even view the distant Arabian sea from Thadiyendamol, the tallest peak in the region. An uneven mountain terrain interlinked with thriving coffee and cardamom plantations, sprinkled hamlets and paddy cultivation lands. The place shot to the fame for cool nice weather, undulated green thriving hills and beautiful scenery around.

Kakkabe is a land of harmony where many communities including Brahmins, Christians, Gowdas, and Jains live together in peace and cooperation. The main ethnic inhabitants are Kodavas, living with unperturbed culture and beliefs.

A popular base for rain forest treks, Kakkabe is home to some uncommon and extraordinary orchids and plants. These forests are known for some wildlife species like pangolin, barking deer, various kinds of birds and flying squirrel.

Kakkabe is thriving and has grown to a popular tourist destination. Nalnad palace and Iguthappa temple are main attractions here and tourists can undertake some adventurous activities like trekking and rock climbing. The Padi Iguthappa Temple, the most famous temple of the Kodavas, is situated here. One can visit the world famous honey farms and the pretty beautiful palace, Nalnad Palace, which is also know to fame as hunting lodge.

The landscape of Kakkabe is still mostly unspoiled and unexploited and the treks through the dense forest are highly challenging and hugely rewarding for an enthusiast traveler. A birdwatchers paradise, Kakkabe is an extraordinarily marvelous place to visit.
