Around 7 km from Madikeri, it is one of the most scintillating attractions of the town. This magnificent waterfall lies amidst the hilly terrain of the Western Ghats where the holy River Kaveri cascades down with a huge roaring from a height of 70 feet. Nowadays, a hanging bridge has also been built across the gorge that presents an overwhelming sight of the falls. The entire region of the Abbey Falls is surrounded with coffee plantations and dense trees offering a picturesque backdrop for the tourists and is an ideal picnic spot to enjoy a pleasant daytime with your family and friends. During the monsoons, it offers a fantastic sight to be enjoyed.
