Catherine Falls, Coonoor Reviews

  • Beautiful spot... Can spend more time with friends...On way route to falls you can find scenic photo places ... Accessing is through estate walkway which is little slippier...Riskier to take bath

  • Security is definitely a concern, the area is pretty remote, ladies not advised to go alone, there were drunk men when I visited

  • Good place...small road... Steep valley.. no shops available... Little dangerous... Good to hangout with friends and family.. A 20 minutes drive from aravenu(kotagiri highway).

  • Good place to visit . Not yet commercially exploited. You need to have a private vehicle to reach here.

  • Its a small water fall, but you can take bath there. You need to park vehicle and walk about 10 min through tea plantation to reach the falls. You need to climb down to see the falls and take bath. Be careful about slippery stones while climbing down.
