Madikeri is a prominent place in Coorg district, which is famous for its coffee plantations. Muddukeri, its old name was given by a local ruler who governed Coorg in the 16th Century, which over the years turned into ‘Madikeri’. It has an another name called ‘Mercara’, which was given by the British who had made Coorg as one of their leisure stations, due to its year round pleasant climate . Coorg was then nick-named as the Scotland of India, and even now this place has the same climate with lush green nature. Thanks to the local agrarian population, the serenity of this place has been intact with modern day developments not hampering the pleasant environment in this hill station. It is a small town with limited population and is surrounded by well maintained coffee estates cuddled with huge trees all over. Due to its cool climate and evergreen scenic beauty Coorg is often called as the Kashmir of South India and Madikeri – as the capital of this place. Madikeri in Coorg is where you can find maximum number of Hotels, Resorts and Homestays accommodating the ever-increasing flow of tourists.
Abbey waterfalls : Small but magnificent water fall in a tributary of Kaveri River near to Madikeri town. Abbey falls is located between private coffee plantations with stocky coffee bushes and spice estates with trees entwined with pepper vines. Abbey falls was earlier called Jessi falls, named after a British officer’s wife. Flow of water is moderate throughout the year except Monsoon when the flow is much higher. The increased number of visitors has taken a huge toll on the natural beauty of the falls and surrounding places. Recommend to go early in the morning where crowd is less and can hear the whispering water in silence and the colourless water looks white like snow.(Distance from Madikeri- 6 km)
