Abbi' in coorgie means a waterfall .A waterfall you don't want to miss. The British called it the Jessie waterfalls in memory of Jessie the daughter of Madikeri's first captain. Abby cascades 70 ft down to flow as a small river .The falls appear suddenly, the water cascading over rocks into calm pools. A path through coffee and cardamom plantation off the main road adds to the attraction of the falls. Enjoy the gushing, roaring beauty but a desire to take a dip in the cool waters may prove to be risky.
