We drove back to Madikeri(around 28 kms) and went straight for Abbey Falls which is another 8 Kms. The road is narrow with one hair pin curve which is very much manageable.
After car parking we walked a little down to see the actual falls......much before you see it you hear it.
Its a spectacular falls worth spending some time.There is also a hanging bridge from where one can see a straight view of the falls.We felt that in monsoon the beauty of the falls will be much more.
Marketing and dining in Madikeri
The next thing that was in our mind was to do some local shopping and of course tasting some Kodava cuisine.We brought big cardamon,tea leaves,tamarind toffee and coorg honey chocolate and coffee .The price of these things are much less in Coorg when compared to Blore.
For tasting Kodava cuisine,we went to a restaurant named "Coorg Cuisine " on the recommendation of the shopkeeper.We decided to taste a 1) typical kodava mutton dish made with a lot of coconut and 2) bamboo shoot fry with rice balls.Mutton dish was okay but the bamboo shoot fry was pathetic.We felt that Kodava cuisine is good but the restaurant could not deliver it properly.
Than we started our journey towards Mysore
