    Decent waterfall, one of tye major attractions of coorg
    Another waterfall in south India which is worth visiting after rainy season. However we went pre monsoon in May, it wasn't that bad. One can only see the falls from far and it's blocked for bathing n all. There is a walk down and proper stairs are there. We were there with 3 kids under 6 years and all of them.walked comfortably. It's around 500m walk down with 10m elevation change.

    Wonderful view
    The main attraction in Madikeri. Little long route from Madikeri town with lot of small roads. Google map can guide you better to trace the route. However sign board will help you to travel the last one km . Wonderful view of the Falls. Even during summer we get enough water in falls. The major disadvantage is we cannot go near or take bath in the falls as it is fenced only we can take a view. we need to walk the steps down lying between the coffee plantation having lot of Jack fruit trees. The sign board warns us about the mis-happenings in the falls and that justifies the fencing.

    Abbey Falls Coorg
    It's a beautiful view of the waterfall. But the surrounding has not looked good. There is a hanging bridge and it's broken. Not repaired. There are no seats to sit and enjoy the beauty of the waterfall. We can't go to near the waterfall , even a short distance into the water. Only can see from a distance. We visited June 11, 2023

    Main attraction of Coorg
    The main attraction in Coorg located near Madikeri Town.Little Long route with narrrow roads from Madikeri Town.Google map will guide until the last but one km where you need to follow signboard. Good parking place with valley view. Entrance to falls has a signboard with details of falls along with a warning about mishappennings happened earlier. We need to walk down through the fenced steps in the middle of a coffee estate. The falls gives a wonderful view from the steps. Three layers/ steps of flow from top giving an awesome visit worth the climbing in the steps. We are neither allowed to go near falls nor to take bath. A broken bridge & watch tower is available. Space is Little less to handle peak crowd. Parking space has public amenities with few restaurants..

    Little Waterfall
    The Abbey Falls were a long drive from Virajpet where we were staying till Madikeri in Coorg. The vehicles can go and park very close to falls. The price of tickets is quite low. There are many steps to go down. The steps are not high and some are quite wide. There are banisters. People who are old or cannot climb steps cannot access the falls. At the bottom of the falls there is a short viewing tower. The steps to fall have some benches but some are not in good condition. The trash cans are shaped like animals but are also looking worn or are overflowing. The steps are wet in rainy weather and get slippery.

    Waterfall is a scenic grandeur
    The waterfall is a combination of many streams that come together and fall into a pool of water that flows and merge into River Kaveri. The scenic grandeur of Abbey Falls increases by many folds in monsoon. During Monsoon, the stream of water becomes thicker with louder roar. Adding to it is the richer greenery around, which does create sight of a lifetime

    Falls within Lush Greenery
    Abbey Falls, located near Madikeri, is one of the popular tourist spots in Coorg. The entry fee is Rs. 10 per pax. From entry gate, there is a downward walk, through concrete pathway / steps to the falls. The downward walk is easy, however in between sitting provisions on the side of pathway are available for rest, if necessary. Relatively a small waterfall with couple of minor / moderate streams. When we visited in June’23, the water streams were normal. The waterfall is nestled between several plantations and greenery all around, which offers a nice scenic beauty. The sight of water falling from a high cliff, surrounded by lush greenery is indeed a nice sight. A viewing tower is available at the side of falls, also a non-operational hanging bridge is available just opposite the falls. A nice spot for photo ops.

The waterfall itself is nice. But you will not be allowed to enter the falls. In addition there is so much crowd that you might be forced to watch it from a long distance. This makes the whole experience not worth it. I would recommend visiting this place only if it is a weekday and if you can anticipate less crowd...

After taking breakfast at The Tamara Coorg , we left it for the famous Abbey Falls 43.4 Km away from the Resort and 10 Km away from Madikeri Via Madikeri – Napoklu Road and SH 90 .

After parking our car , I entered the Falls area nestled within the lush greenery of private coffee plantations and spice estates with tall trees entwined with pepper vines . After walking down exactly 160 clean and near flat concrete steps having small risers and enjoying various trees on both sides of the track with railings and iron nets for safety of the kids and alike , I could see the Abbey Falls cascading down the 23 m high cliff . As during the last few days , there were thunder storms in the catchment area , the Falls was pregnant with bountiful of water and though I was about 100 m away from the Falls significant amount of water sprays successfully tried to drench me .

There was used to be a suspension bridge across the downstream water stream . It was in unusable state .

For Hindi Movie buffs , Some scenes of Khoon Bhari Mang were shot here .

The walk down and up to the falls was gradual and even senior citizen like me ( 72 years ) easily visited the Falls .

Though I visited during the period of about a week long thunder storms , I did not come across any leeches .

Timing : 0900 – 1700
Entrance Fee : Rs 15 / person
Parking Fee : Rs 10 - 50 for Vehicle Parking Fee (depending on the type of vehicle) : Rs 30

There are much better waterfalls in Coorg district namely the mallalli & irupu. There was fair amount of water even during Feb.
Avoid it for below reason:
1. Crowded; maybe because the access is much easier with well laid footpath.
2. Not worth the hype, neither is it that beautiful nor can you take a dip in the water.
3. Fenced as if its a kohinoor diamond, there is a super mini view tower, guess what that's PROPERLY fenced even with a mesh grill. I mean what's the point of a elevated view point with a mesh grill !!
4. Above all, the viewing area is super tiny. Maybe can accommodate 25-30 people !!

I have been to Irupu falls, the footpath is not that well laid out, but it far less crowded, multi tiered, much more beautiful and you can take a dip in the pristine clear water !!

The falls are enroute from Kushalnagar to Madekari. Must visit. Especially so just after the monsoons or during. They are eye catching and a treat. The down slope pathway to the falls is broad and cemented. Not too steep at all, only a gentle incline/climb. From the parking area the falls can be reached in about 10 or max 15 minutes time. We were there when the water flow was quite strong. I would assume that during peak seasons there would be a large crowd at the falls. The viewing area for visitors is not large and can get crowded. The bridge across the waterway from one hill side to the other is broken. Otherwise this would be a perfect place for a classic photo right in front of the falls. There is a small higher level platform also for a photo but this has wire mesh fencing so a good photo cannot be taken. Be careful, if you go up to this platform, it does not seem to be a strong and safe platform.

This is a really good place to visit in Coorg. Enjoyed being here, the path to the waterfalls is good with concrete steps which makes it safer for travelers. The hanging bridge is broken and scrapped, it would be great if that is repaired and kept available for visitors.

This is an amazing place to visit. Try to carry an umbrella or raincoat. Beat to wear floaters to avoid wet shoes during rains. Reaching this place requires descend and ascend of approx 1kms each side so plan for family members who can walk that length accordingly. Nice scenic view and good place for clicks .

Way to waterfalls is well maintained and safe
Greenery on both sides on the way to falls

There are only 2 refreshment shops at the start of the way to falls with lime juice, snacks and homemade wine
No refreshment shops on the way or at the falls

No phone network for Vodafone in abbey falls

Few benches are available to sit on the way down to abbey falls
Some reviews stated to climb down 200 steps to see the falls but we couldn’t find 200 steps
It wasn’t difficult to climb down and up

Go before 10 am if you plan to click photos at the falls. From 11 am onwards it’s crowded and clicking photos with the waterfalls background will be difficult.
A still photographer was available there for paid instant photos

Hanging bridge near the falls is damaged

The waterfall is nice but there is nothing else than that. Too many people clicking selfies not giving you space to enjoy the scenery.
Reaching the falls going down a flight of stairs is easy but senior citizens may find it difficult to come back up climbing those many stairs.
