Visited in May hence no waterfall. Only boating was available. Waterfall is available mainly from August to November. But no boating during heavy rainfall.

Nice place geographically, but i guess we have chosen wrong weather to go there. The place was very dry, not even single drop of water in the falls. even the river was shallow. However the boat ride was good. We can go but only in monsoon or post monsoon only. Big No for summer season(March to June)

There is a ticket of Rs.5/- to get into the bridge. You are allowed there only for 5 minutes. The view was awesome. The place is... More

I had been with my wife and friends from Bangalore. When we reached over there few shops were closed and tourists were negligible. The best time to go is from Oct - mid of march as there will be running water. We were there yesterday, and there was no sign of any flowing water. Water in the river was stagnant... More

It was great to see this awesome water fall on River Kaveri. The great height from which the water falls nearly converts some part of the water into mist. Often referred to as Niagara falls of India, it was amazing to see the seven channels into which kaveri water segregates and falls. The water creates a pool at the bottom.... More

I have ever gone closest to one of the biggest falls is this. Never imagined that I will enjoy so much at the falls. One of the amazing thing is the snacks are sold in the moving boat(Teppa) shops.

The idea was to reach Hogenakkal by 12.00 pm stay there upto 4.00 and then start return journey). Went to my in laws place and collected the food items that were packed and kept ready (for lunch). Ultimately we were off to our journey at 8.45 am. Went straight into Bangalore University–Kengeri ring road-Mysore road and then reached NICE road.... More
