Nestled in the midst of the picturesque locations of Coorg, Abbey Falls (or Abbi falls) is one of Karnataka’s most famous tourist attractions. Located in the middle of the Western Ghats, the falls is surrounded by nature, and is a treat for any nature lover.
The falls is made by the early reaches of the river Cauveri. The falls itself is located in between private coffee plantations, where one can witness a plethora of coffee bushes and spice plants surrounding it. The hanging bridge located just across the falls is the best place to view the falls in all its glory.
This was earlier named as Jessi falls, after a British officer’s wife. But back then, this area was covered in thick jungle, and had difficulty in accessing the place. However, years later, this place was rediscovered by Neravanda B. Nanaiah, who bought the place from the government and converted it into the coffee plantation it is today.
The place is easily accessible from Madikeri via a well laid road system that leads to the coffee estate. Once inside the estate you will have to trek a short while before you can reach the waterfalls. You can fallow the roar of the waterfalls that you hare at the road in order to reach the place.
