Central Coffee Research Station
The Central Coffee Research Institute is about 8 kms from Balehonnur on the Sringeri route. Research work on coffee was initiated in 1915 by setting up a temporary laboratory at Koppa and later it was deemed necessary to have a full fledged experimental station to tackle the multifarious problems faced by the coffee industry. Coffee Board took up the administration of the farm from the erstwhile Government of Mysore in 1942 and initiated organized research on coffee in 1946. The institute runs 'Bharathiya Coffee Vidyalaya', a school providing education up to 7 th standard.

Kuppali is the birthplace of ‘Kuvempu’, the poet laureate of Karnataka. Kuppali is situated near Thirthahalli in Shimoga district. The Kuppalli house, which is today a museum dedicated to the legendary poet, is like a mini fortress as thick walls surround all sides with a large main entrance. The strong rough walls have withstood the natural vagaries of the hilly forest terrain. The upstairs of the Kuppali house opens to east. There are windows on all sides. A view from the upstairs provides a beautiful picture of the thick forest of the Sahyadri region.
