We agreed to a price of 1400/- Rs for the round trip of around 4 hours. We along with our driver got in the jeep and started our safariWe crossed a small village with some shops and then soon we entered the beautiful tea estate.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sandeep Roshni shares, “Abbi in Kodagu means falls. This beautiful waterfall is a mere 6km from Madikeri, inside a privately owned coffee estate also surrounded by pepper plantations. From Madikeri the falls are accessible by a narrow road. From the parking ground, one has to walk about 600 metres through the forest area to reach the falls but the terrain is good enough.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nitin Mittal says, “The ride uphill to Dodabetta is amazing as the weather is cold and it's really beautiful to drive through the hills in that climate. Was hoping that I could get a place to stay on top of the hill. But failed. It will be really good if there is a hotel there. You can cover Tata tea estate on the way to Dodabetta too.” Read Full Review
