Trip to Hogenakkal Falls (from Bangalore)

09/ 30/ 2012

  This is about a one day trip which we made to Hogenakkal Falls from Bangalore.

    A series of  water falls formed by the river cauvery at the Hogenakkal Village in Dharmapuri district of Tamil Nadu. It's one of the most popular tourist spots and is frequented by people of the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Most common activity here is just to take a long bath in the gushing waters and taking a coracle ride along the river Cauvery.

Getting There
   Distance between Bangalore and Hogenakkal is approximately 180 KM and it takes around 2.5-3 hours.

The most preferred route to Hogenakkal is
Bangalore ----> Hosur ---> Krishnagiri ---> Dharmapuri ---> Hogenakkal

It's the four lane NH-7 till Dharmapuri, which narrows down to 2 lane(still better) once you deviate towards Hogenakkal shortly after reaching Dharmapuri. Distance from Dharmapuri to Hogenakkal is 45 Kms.

We started around 9 Am and reached around 12:15 including a 30 minutes break at Krishnagiri.

Being a Sunday, Hogenakkal was packed with tourists. Vendors brimmed either side of the street leading to the main falls. Freshly prepared fish is one of the hot selling stuffs here. If you are a veggie and if do not want to test your tummy muscles with makeshift food, then better carry your own food as you wont find a good hotel here.

And my favourite snap !

 If you are in Bangalore or plan to visit Bangalore, Hogenakkal is a awesome place worth visiting too. And do not forget your sun screen and goggles !
