KoteAbbi Waterfalls

 
In my last Coorg visit our Jeep driver said ‘if you have time go to KoteAbbi falls’ my ears perked at that bit of information. He seemed sincere after all when we paid him he flashed a good smile and said ‘Do go to falls you’ll love it’. I knew then that it was going to be a long day my perceptions about this place are about to change irrevocably.
 
Also I collected some useful information from Arvind sir about this place I like to thank him, he provided some useful information’s about this place and an existence of this waterfalls. After a short journey we came to near our destined place. A short walk brought up us to in front of the fall. It is a beautiful sight to see the waterfalls flowing into a gorge from a height of 40-50 feet.
 
Water flows rapidly into a pond with a loud roar. The mist kicked up by the falls cooled the surrounding air. The pristine surrounding adds to the beauty of the place. Fresh water gushing through rocks. We could never tell how deep the water ran. The big pond and water droplets make it difficult to view the falls from close. But still we manged to reach left side of the waterfalls Moreover, every step on the boulders has to be traded carefully near the waterfall as it can prove dangerous.

 
 
The waterfalls magnificence of what I did see for that brief moment will stay with me forever and I still consider its one of the highlights of the trip.
