About Hogenakkal Falls

Hogenakkal Falls is often known as the 'Niagara of India'. Located in the Dharmapuri District of Tamil Nadu, it lies at a distance of about 180 kilometres from Bangalore and 46 kilometres from Dharmapuri. Importance of the site can be assessed by the fact that the destination derived its name from the water cascades that fall from a great height, creating an aura of smoke.

A waterfall in South India on the Kaveri River, it has gained immense fame for its medicinal baths and hide boat rides. Considered as one of the oldest in the world and the oldest of its kind in South Asia, carbonatite rocks adorn the site. Owing to its water that is supposed to be having curative power, the site is a beautiful picnic spot.

Comprising a series of falls, these are resulted by the forking of the broad stream of the Kaveri River forming an island. One of the forked streams plunges into a deep chasm to create the falls. Set in thick, green woods, it is often considered to be a sacred bathing place and a spa-like health resort.
