Places To Visit in Coorg

The river is part of the early reaches of the river Kaveri. Flow is much higher during the monsoon season. The waterfall is located between private coffee plantations with stocky coffee bushes and spice estates with trees entwined with pepper vines. A hanging bridge constructed just opposite the falls.
It was earlier called Jessi falls named after a British officer's wife. However, the place was a thick jungle area back then. Years later, the beautiful waterfall was discovered by Mr Neravanda B Nanaiah who bought the place from the government and converted it into a coffee and spices plantation that is surrounding the waterfall today.
The rise in tourists influx over the years has taken a huge toll on the natural beauty of the place and resulted in polluted water that stinks during the summer season and unaccountable amount of plastic littering throughout the estate and the river.
