Kodagu region is popular for its sprawling coffee plantations and its “Home stay” tourism. Kutta is as south as one can get in Kodagu. While Kutta itself has some home stay options, other popular points like Gonikoppal and Virajpet are connected by road from Kutta.

In some way Kutta is a gateway from Karnataka to the Wayanad district of Kerala.

Kutta has a small bus station with frequent bus services to the neighboring towns, especially the interstate local services between Kerala and Karnataka.
