About Catherine Waterfalls

Cascading from a height of 250 feet, the Catherine Falls are located in Kotagiri and the real definition of a gem in the lap of nature. The falls are named after the wife of Mr. M.D Cockburn, Catherine, who were the first Europeans to settle in Kotagiri and also responsible for the coffee plantation in the area and Yercaud. Locally known as Geddhehadda Halla, which means the ‘Foothills of the Dale River,' Catherine falls clearly and can be best witnessed from a vantage point at Dolphin’s Nose that allows you a glorious view of these double-cascading falls.
