- We had a wonderful experience during the guided coffee plantation walk, gaining deeper insights into the world of spices and the art of coffee harvesting. The coffee museum was truly delightful.Written 8 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Roads are very rocky. When you want off-roading experience then only choose this location. Sr. Citizen,small babies families or people with backpain please check if you want to go or not. Jeep 🚙 is the only option you get to reach at peak. We shared it with other couple, it took 2500 total for us. Experienced somewhat harsh driving but road was also not good and we requested driver to go somewhat slow. Once you reach at point, it's very beautiful. When we visited it was cloudy. Pathway to reach at top of hill at sight is very beautiful. You will need approximately 45 min to reach, 45 min roam around sight n sane time to come back. We visited it after visiting abbey falls and started at 3.30 pm to go there.Written 9 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I am not too amazed why the king would choose this place to spend an evening! It's the grand view and clouds above you at a hand's stretch that would make you feel like on the top of the world. A must visit place when at Madikeri. There is an evening musical fountain and hence it becomes crazy crowded. I would recommend you to visit during morning hours.Written 24 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The location is fantastic, on the banks of Cauvery in Coorg district of Karnataka. What made our day was the attention to details by the staff, whether it was the restaurant staff or the boat man or the safari jeep driver, all were very courteous and pleasant. Visit to the river to watch the elephant bathing was very nice.
We forgot our hot water bag in the room when we checked out. Got a call from the housekeeping staff and they sent it by courier to us. Amazing.Written 22 September 2023
- A breath taking view - worth the journey one has to make from Coorg … The waterfall is majestic, the stairs to the fall add to the overall experience as the view keeps growing on you ..
Well maintained and clean surroundings. Carry own water and refreshments. And a Camera 😃Written 16 August 2023
- This waterfall in inside the brahmagiri wildlife sanctuary and we need to pay the entry fee of 50rs to visit.There is no direct bus transport to reach this place.We need to get down at a place called srimangala and from there we can hire an auto for 340 rs to and from.They will wait for an half an hour.We need to walk for 1km inside the sanctuary to reach this fall.This is a very beautiful and peaceful waterfall and crowd is little less.There is a temple of Lord shiva(Ramalingeswara) near to the entry gateWritten 24 December 2021
- An ancient temple, located within the town. The temple has a nice architecture with a water tank adjacent to temple. When we visited on a rainy day, it was less crowded and hence darshan could be done quickly. The temple had a calm atmosphere, we spent some peaceful family time inside the temple. Temple has specific opening time and dress code.Written 16 July 2023
- It was a perfect morning hiking up. The trek opens up between 6am to.7am depending on mist status. We reached the entry point around 7am. The road till teh entry point is well cemented and even the entry point has a decent parking space too. There is a good view point at the start too. It's a hike of almost 4km one way upto the peak with elevation gain of 450m. The route starts with a nice forest coverage walk and then through the meadows and finally last stretch of steep hike under the sun! The view from the top is definitely worth up the hike.Written 29 May 2023
- Nice drive to this holy place. One would expect lot of waterbodies around but there is none. Cauvery river is underground and emerges ( again unseen) at sangam a few kms away. A quiet place and lacks info on the importance of this place which sources a great river that flows across the southern India irrigating and giving life to crires of people.Written 4 July 2023
- Bagamandala & Talacavery can be covered together. I suggest starting early from Madikeri, you have to climb about 50-60 steps barefoot. The summer heat will hit you. The steep climb to the viewpoint adjacent to Talacavery is closed for over a year nowWritten 22 April 2023

- loved the view the surrounding full of Green Nature... Life away from Busy city life ... beautiful river you see crossing most of the KarnatakaWritten 30 August 2019
- This waterfalls is little less crowded compared to other falls in coorg, due to remote location and little steep terrain to see the falls. 10 min walk on muddy or slippery pathway is a bit challenging. However you can see the watefalls from a sideway at a distance, as authority has closed the pathway leading to plunge of falls at base.Take extra precaution as rocks are slippery during monsoon. During our visit there is little raining and we couldn't spend much time at view point.
10 min. walk is not feasible for senior citizen.
However waterfalls having magnificent view in rainy season.Written 30 November 2019
- We stayed in Jungle Retreat Wayanad and the starting point of the trek was just 5 minutes drive. This is an excellent trek for anyone looking to know more about nature and wildlife. Path less explored, so not crowded.Written 27 March 2023
