QUESTION: Anyone knows how to get to Kaleechi falls


ANSWER: by Wellesley Gayle, March 04, 2013



Thanks for your question Ingrid, love it!

Why? Because I never heard of it prior to you asking the question. And to hear that this hidden gem is actually in my neck of the woods has made it pique my interest even more.

The only information I got was that it is in the hills of St. James, here in Jamaica.

Well, I contacted Bonita Jamaica, a partner of mine. They take a lot, and I mean a lot, of photos about all things Jamaica, and incidentally they also had a picture (shown above) of Kaleechi falls.

I therefore made contact, and was provided this response.

"It is on a private property on the border of Hanover and St. James.

It is a part of Chukka Caribbean Adventure's Safari tour out of Sandy Bay Hanover. They have access to the property and the tour will take you there. We don't know of any other way to gain access. Thnx."

So there you have it. This was certainly education for me as well.

I hope this information was helpful enough to you though Ingrid? I hope to personally check it out soon. Do have a great day now.

Kaleechi Falls NEW
by: Anonymous

From your comments it must be along the GreatRiver as it runs through the Orange Farm, but before you reach Leithe. I have often wanted to go down that river in a kayak. Never heard of these falls before either, though

Your site is very informative and those who navigate your pages will find that they get a share of our island paradise.

Quest for the mysterious falls NEW
by: john blenkiron

I thought I knew every nook and cranny on the island. I knew of some falls on the Great River, such as the falls over the dam at the far western edge of the property owned by Silent Waters Villa, but the one in the picture looks far prettier. I was told once that there were a number of small falls along the river which runs along the Hanover-St.James boundary.

I suspect Kaleechi Falls are along that stretch of river just south of Lethe where all the river rafting takes place. I wonder whether Kaleechi is a phonetic spelling of Caleici, the ancient and picturesque town centre of Anatalya in Turkey.

Oh dear, how embarrassing! I live in lucea and I've lived in St James and travel back and forth to Montego Bay and pass Chukka and I've NEVER heard of Kaleechi Falls but on the lighter side, I can now impress the locals of my new found knowledge! Thanks for sharing.

Another Jamaican adventure just waiting for me to explore! NEW
by: Kathie Hosmer

Wow...how gorgeous! It looks like it may have been an old mill or dam there? i can't see the detail of the picture but looks like a fun place to go exploring. Definitely going to pack a swimsuit to jump in the river but I'll bet it's as cold as Y.S. Falls was!!!

I think Jamaica is calling me to come back and visit soon...

never seen Kaleechi Falls NEW
by: Glyden

I have never seen Kaleechi Falls, my friend. But back in the 60s, on my first visit to Jamaica, when two of my brothers were studying at Mona, I actually experienced the thrill of climbing up the falls at Dunn's River...Have a good one.....
