Located around 8kms from Madikere town , this nice waterfall is a great attraction for tourists . It is a part of the Kaveri river. Unfortunately one has to negotiate a large number of stairs to see the fall. Hence not recommended for elderly people...More

Nice water fall. But requires long walk through staircase to reach. Staircases are fenced with metal nets on both sides. There was a hanging bridge earlier. Due to landslide, it is currently damaged. Not suitable for elderly as no of staircases are high.

This is a must visit. The approach to the waterfall is a walk down quite a few stairs, hence advisable for those who'd have trouble walking up stairs, to give it a miss. The water falls by quite a force, and is a nice experience

Superb place to enjoy with family, don't forget to take photos from the corner near the security cabin to avoid the crowd and get the best shot.

It is a long fleet of stairs to reach the water fall. It is a tourist spot for people visiting coorg.

Nice place to visit but not recommended during summer. Bathing is not allowed, but it is a fabulous place to visit once.

For seeing abbey falls you have to climb down plenty of steps which are very tough to climb especially for elders .fall is beautiful but all fenced up so you climb down just to see it.

The climb up is quite steep for Senior Citizens. Also due to monsoons the concrete path can be a bit slippery. Walking shoes are recommended

Only if it rains very heavily, they may prevent entry for safety reasons. Otherwise it's open.
