Madikeri (Mercara)/India

Introducing Madikeri (Mercara)

Also known as Mercara, this congested market town is spread out along a series of ridges. The only reason for coming here is to organise treks or sort out the practicalities of travel.A colourful time to visit is around November and December when the Kodava community celebrates Huthri, a week-long festival that commemorates the start of the rice harvesting season.
