Catherine Falls - Review

These are the second largest falls in the Nilgiris at a height of 250 feet. It is also a good trekking destination. These descending falls are encircled by tea-plantations, grand views of forest and Mettupalayam plains. Though it’s not possible to reach the foot of the waterfall but you can reach the top, also called as Dolphin’s Nose, to get the spectacular view. The place offers stunning and exquisite views of the valley. It is set in a calm environment with a gorgeous view of the falls.

Catherine Falls, Coonoor Reviews

  • We need to walk some distance before we can reach the falls. Its not known by many people. So we can expect less people around there. Going as a group will make it more fun.

  • Such an amazing place. Not for family as it don't have proper way to reach the falls. But a sure delight for adventure lovers.

  • One has to trek a distance of 700m to reach the water falls. A bit exhaustive trek. If you prefer not to do the trek, you can still get to the view point of the water falls which is near the entrance. Beware of monkeys 🐒. You can bath in this waterfall but just watch out for the intensity of water flow.

  • Recommended for guys age between 18 to 30. Falls is so good to bath. No proper path to reach the falls. Its not under government care. Bath at your own risk. Not suitable for famiky and girls.

  • This place is one of the least explored...if you want to just view the waterfall from the top,walk a few 50 mts...but if u need a bath in the ice cold fountain,requires an half an hour walk through the tea estate ..on the way u can click a few snaps shows mesmerizing beauty of nature...fountain was shallow when we with children and older ones better avoid
