HolidayIQ Reviewer Anu Monisha adds, “We went for boating in the coracle and it was my first ever experience. It was amazing and they used a new kind of transportation mode. Enjoyed going to the wavy river up and down, touching the water and feeling the chillness..”  

HolidayIQ Reviewer Siva Ram adds, “Superb waterfalls; I visited Talakona Waterfalls but if you compare with Hogenakkal waterfalls, the latter one was the best. Most of the films were shot here. I think it is the best place to visit. If you want boating you can do that one also.”

Ultimate experience of life

One day trip can be plan from Bangalore. 150 kms from Bangalore. 3 hours to take by car. Only private car / taxi is suitable to visit this place. I've visited this place 2 years ago with family. Take Bangalore - Salem road and get right from Dharmapuri. After Dharmapuri, road are single but quiet good. Last 5 kms, your car will get down slops. In parking area, too many boat owners will catch you for your trip and bargaining is there. There are round boats like used in ROJA movie and a song is filmed on it. Boat is taking under the water fall where water is 300 ft deep. Boat driver is continuously emptying water from boat. Your all assets are getting wet. Keep plastic bags to protect them. Small children's are jumping in such deep water from 30-40 ft high for free bucks. Go only in summer to enjoy this place.

The best water falls nearby Bangalore!

A weekend getaway from the busy life of Bangalore. Roads are good and be careful when you enter water. Many people visit everyday. Take precaution of entering water as stones are slippery and no medical facility available near by. All ways good you go in a group. Rainy season the force is high.

Hogenakkal Overview

Hogenakkal is a small town in Tamil Nadu on the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka border, which is known for its waterfall. The Hogenakkal Waterfall is a famous picnic spot. It is located at a height of 750 feet in the Melagiri Hills. Its water is said to have healing powers.

Hogenakkal Waterfalls, called as the Niagara of India are a sequence of falls. The wide flow of the Kaveri River gets split at this point, forms an island and plunges into a deep gulf to create one of the most beautiful waterfalls. The rocks thus get there name as Hogenakkal, which means ‘smoking rock’.

This seashore bath is well-known for coracle rides and masseurs. The noise of the Kaveri River, noisy between pebbly banks, is a regular attendance at most places in Hogenakkal. An additional attraction is the diving skill of the local kids, who show somersaults for a charge. They jump from a height of approximately 30 feet into the stream and go up straight back on the rocks within seconds.

Tourists can take a coracle trip from one corner of the river to the other. The coracles or spherical basket boats are enclosed with black synthetic sheets and take tourists across the waterway to the base of the falls. The best time to visit Hogenakkal is during the rainy season when the river overflows.

Hogenakkal is a popular daytrip destination from Bangalore and nearby cities. It is just over 130 km from Bangalore and bus services are available from Bangalore in Karnataka and Salem in Tamil Nadu. The nearest airport is Bangalore International Airport and the nearest rail station is at Dharmapuri and Salem.
