Hogenakkal Located at the borders of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, amidst the Melagiri Hills, Hogenakkal is famous for its waterfalls. Hogenakkal is situated at a height of 250 meters above sea level, and has a moderate climate with warm summers and pleasant winters.
Summer in Hogenakkal prevails between the months of March to June. During this season the average maximum temperature is around 34 to 37° Celsius and the average minimum temperature is 23° Celsius. The summer heat makes it quite uncomfortable for tourists to enjoy the place and not too many tourists visit at this time of the year.
Monsoon arrives here during June to August, and during these months the place receives frequent showers, causing the river to overflow. This is a good time for sight-seeing since the waterfall remains in full force due to the rains.
Hogenakkal has a pleasant winter during the months of December to February. During the winter season the average maximum temperature is around 27° Celsius and the average minimum temperature is 13° Celsius.
Hogenakkal can be visited almost all through the year except during the summer months. The best part of the year to visit Hogenakkal is however right after the monsoon season, during the months of October and March. During this time the river is in full spade and tourists can experience the beauty of the waterfalls.
Also, the weather is quite pleasant during this time with moderate and comfortable temperatures. However, many tourists also prefer to visit the place during the off-season as well. Boating is allowed only during the dry season during which time the water falls are not strong enough to disturb the boats.
