Geography

Kadur is located at coord|13.55|N|76.01|E| [ [http://www.fallingrain.com/world/IN/19/Kadur.html Falling Rain Genomics, Inc - Kadur] ] . It has an average elevation of 763 metres (2503 feet).

The larger portion of the taluk consists of the Malnad or hill country, which contains some of the wildest mountain scenery in southern India. The western frontier is formed by the chain of the Ghats, of which the highest peaks are the Kudremukh (6215 ft.) and the Meruti Gudda (5451 ft.). The centre is occupied by the horse-shoe range of the Baba Budangiri hill range, containing the loftiest mountain in Mysore, Mulaiigiri (6317 ft.). The Maidan or plain country lying beneath the amphitheatre formed by the Baba Budan hills is a most fertile region, well watered, and with the famous black cotton soil. The principal rivers are the Tunga and Bhadra, which rise near each other in the Ghats, and unite to form ,the Tungabhadra, a tributary of the Krishna. The eastern region is watered by the Vedavati. At the point where this river leaves the Baba Budan hills it is embanked to form two extensive tanks which irrigate the lower valley. From all the rivers water is drawn off into irrigation channels by means of anicuts or weirs.

The largest town is Tarikere (pop. 10,164); the headquarters are at Chikmagalur (9515)ath

Kadur is reachable by Road and Train from state capital. Bus journey takes (on NH206) just 4-5hrs. Train journey takes 3-4 hrs.

Natural resources

The following is an account of the region from a British source in the early 20th century (sadly, almost all the forest is today gone): The chief natural wealth of Kadur is in its forests, which contain inexhaustible supplies of the finest timber, especially teak, and also furnish shelter for the coffee plantations. Iron is found and smelted at the foot of the hills, and corundum exists in certain localities. Wild beasts and game are numerous, and fish are abundant.

The staple crop is rice, chiefly grown on the hifi slopes, where the natural rainfall is sufficient, or in the river valley, where the fields can be irrigated. Coffee cultivation is said to have been introduced by a Mahommedan saint, Baba Budan, more than two centuries ago; but it first attracted European capital in 1840. The district is served by the southern railways and is the nearest railway station to Chickmagalur.
