Kottancherry Hills is a group of hills close to the Brahmagiri Hills of Kudagu in Karnataka and within the Western Ghats region in Kasaragod district. It is believed that the hills - Kottancherry mala, Kumban mala, Pannyar mala, and Kanthanppara are in the shape of a fort, hence the name Kottancherry.
