Abbey Falls   |   Kodagu

Abbey Falls (also spelled Abbi Falls and Abbe Falls) is in Kodagu, in theWestern Ghats in Karnataka, India. It is located 8 km from the town of Madikeri and 268 km from Bangalore.

In the mountains of the Western Ghats, several streams combine, swelling with the monsoon rains and plunging down the mountain slope at enormous speed, hitting the huge boulders hard and forcing through the crevices and ravines. A misty cloud hangs over the falls. From here the water flows into the Kaveri River. During the monsoon season the water flow is very high. During the dry seasons the flow is considerably diminished.There is a Kali Mata temple on the other side of the bridge and Coffee and Black Pepper trees on the other side.

Madikeri is 250km from Bangalore and 90km from nearest airport in Mangalore. From Madikeri the falls are accessible by a narrow road to the coffee estate. A path through coffee and cardamom plantations leads to the waterfalls. The roar of the falls can be heard from the road. The best time to visit is early winter when the monsoons have brought plenty of water.
