Abbey Falls

Day 5 cont. – 29th December 2011

Abbey Falls is 7 km from Madikeri and is located in a beautiful place, surrounded by coffee plantations and forest. There is a 500m downhill walk, so you have to be careful if walking is a problem for you. Although the waterfall is not very impressive, the surroundings make it a good place to visit.

On the way back we saw a large snake crossing the road. It could have been easily run over by any of the vehicles on the road. I felt guilty about intruding its natural habitat.

We reached Madikeri and decided to have lunch at the Coorg Regency hotel. Impressed by the Club Mahindra's paneer tikka masala, I ordered the same dish here, but the quality was not nearly as good. Even the coffee tasted bland.

We returned to the resort around 1:30 pm. I asked Joohi if she would like to have a quick tour of the resort. For the second time in one day, I took a tour of the resort but this time I was the guide.

We left at 4:00 pm for Omkareshwara temple.

When we reached Omkareshwara temple, it was closed due to an ongoing ceremony and was to re-open at 6:00 pm.

Prakash said we should go to the Raja Seat and come back to the temple later.
