The Madikeri stream also called Muttramuttu, falls 21.3 meter between huge boulders to a deep rocky valley to form this picturesque WaterfallÂ called Abbi falls (abbi means waterfalls in Kodavatak). The British called it the Jessey waterfall in memory of Jessey, theÂ daughter of Madikeri’s first chaplain. Every year a few unwary people meet an unfortunate end over the slipperyÂ rocks here.
