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

  • Beautiful lush greenery and fresh air. A place where journey is much more beautiful than the destination. Don't start climbing down if you have pain in the legs as it will get worse climbing up.

  • Superb place to visit and hangout.. A pinch of trek to the tea estates and then you get the glimpse of the waterfall. Clean and crystal clear. You can take bath in the chilling water. But be safe :)

  • Catherine Water Falls - A nice small waterfalls having water in summer. A nice walk through the tea estate to the view point- The view from the view point is actually good enough to see the swift flowing water- though level was less, the sound was mesmerizing.The walk to the waterfalls is quite long if you want to enjoy the serene waters- its through the middle of tea estates and through average walk can take about 20 mins to reach the falls- But the path to the falls is steep

  • Nice way to enjoy with family and friends. Need not have to trek or walk a long way to reach this waterfall. Scenic beauty around. Enjoy the weather n drive. Double layered waterfall. Water z available all through the year.

  • Nice place but bathing and swimming in this place is not recommended because the river is forest river we don't know about the flow of water. In cause any rain among the catchment areas a sudden water will come we can't escape a lot and lot of death happen because of this reason. So please take care. Good luck.
