Kushalnagar Tibetan settlement, nr Coorg India

Let’s face it, India’s hot and humid south probably isn’t the first place that springs to mind when you think of Tibetan monks but the small town of Bylakuppe, 82km from Mysore, is home to the largest Tibetan settlement in Southern India. With the aroma of yak butter tea hanging heavy in the air, the deep murmur of chanting echoing through the prayer halls of the settlement’ impressive monastery and prayer wheels spinning at a rate of knots, this is the place to come to see a little slice of Tibet but minus the cold!
