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)
