Hogenakkal Falls or Hogenakal Falls known as the “Niagara of India” is a beautiful waterfall which is formed from the Kaveri River. It is located in the Dharmapuri district of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu and at around about 180 km from Bangalore. At Hogenakkal, the Kaveri, drops and creates numerous waterfalls as the water cuts through the rocky terrain creating a continuous thunder. The word Hogenakkal is derived from the the Kannada words Hoge, which mean smoke, and Kal which describes the rocks.

Route Information:

There are at least 2 ways to reach this destination from Bangalore. I exactly don’t remember the way we took while coming back, but this route is shorter then the one we took while going towards the destination. I am not in a position to describe that route, but we have entered Bangalore via Electronic city.

The one that we took while going towards Hogenakkal is as follows,

Outer Ring road -> Hoskote -> Right turn (below flyover) -> Mallur -> Bagalur -> Hosur -> Chikka Belagondapalli -> Hogenakkal

The road is good condition is very good and is not crowded as other roads, as it makes it wineds across the villages. We had all had a very good experience of the village life out there. The best part of it as we enter the forest area, which is inhabited by animals including the elephants, which we had an experience while coming back.

It is very difficult for me to elaborate the experience that we had gone through including the accident which Srikant and Rajshekar had in the jungle with both of them shivering. Anyway it was a good ride, which took almost 10 hrs of bike riding covering a distance of around 372 kms.

Another famous temple in the area is the Mahalakshmi Temple at Goravanahalli.

Route Information:

There are two ways to reach this destination from Bangalore. You can either take the Bangalore – Tumkur National Highway or via Yelhanka – Doddaballapur – Dobbspet Road. The former very dry as we undertook while coming from our destination while the later goes through some of the villages giving a lively view of village life.

Route 1:- Take the Bangalore – Tumkur road. Go to till Dobbespet. Go under the flyover and take a right. Take the right below the flyover. The left one leads you to Shivagange betta and right leads to Devarayandurga. It totals to around 80 kms from Bangalore.

Route 2:- As you move from Yelhanka towards Doddaballapur you will come across a section (circle) wherein one way goes to right hand side goes to Nandi Hills, middle road goes to Ghati Subramanya while the left goes to Dobbspet. Travel on that road till you reach the highway. As you enter the highway below the flyover, take the right. You can ask anyone or you will see the markings stating the way to the place. It is around 45 kms from Doddaballapur totaling about 90 kms from Yelhanka.
