Abbey Water Falls, Madikeri

Abbey Water Falls located in Madikeri area just 8 kms from the town area. This falls is located in a private property at a lower area when compared to the surrounding area and can be reached climb down a set of steep slope. 



The falls cascades 70 ft down  over rocky ravine into calm pools to flow as a small river. The site of  the gushing, roaring scene is a beauty worth attention. 



The water flow is very high during the monsoon season and we were here during this season. A hanging bridge built in front of the falls provides an excellent view of the falls. 



The best time to visit is early winter when the monsoons bring plenty of water and we were here during this time.

Nice waterfall! There's just so much beauty in this world - I could wish human kind would use much more time on sharing and enjoying this kind of beauty, instead of fighting and harassing each other...

What a wonderful sight of the waterfall, I wouldn't fancy going on that bridge during the Monsoon Season.
I wonder if the authorities harness the power of the waterfall to generate electricity ?
Good pictures too,
best wishes,

Beautiful post. Beautiful pictures. Just wondering how the gushing sound would be like. I doubt we cannot her each other's talks due to the enormous sound.
