After going round MandalaPatti, we were dropped back in Madikeri, and we took our car to go to Abbey Falls, which is at a distance of 8 km from the city.

Abbey Falls stands surrounded by a blanket of greenery and the beauty is enchanting. To reach the waterfall, one has to cover a short distance by foot, walking down the steps.

On the way to waterfall, one will be greeted by lush plantations of spice and coffee. The sound of the water along with aroma of plantations is delight in itself.The brilliant view from the hanging bridge is sight to cherish.

During rainy season, the gush of waterfalls is much more, as the volume of water is more.

A number of small streams come together to form the sizzling cascade at Abbey Falls. The cascade gushes down a height of 70 ft to form a pool below that joins River Cauvery. During the monsoon season, as the streams widen and the level of water increases, the rush down the cascade thicker and beautiful watch.

We spent about half an hour at the falls and walked back, climbing up the steps, reached Madikeri and had our Lunch at ShantiSagar and proceeded further to Hunsur.
