The relatively lesser known peak Nishani Motte is located in the Tala Cauvery/ Branhmagiri range part of Coorg. The peak is also known by the name of Nishani Betta which literally translates to the marked hill in the local language.
The name is derived from the fact that during the British era, the peak was used as a mark to find the directions to different places on the hill path. In addition to having a picturesque landscape, the peak provides a stunning view of the other hills and mountains of the Brahmagiri range.
