One can go Hogenakkal in three routes. The first one Bengaluru, Hosur, Krishnagiri, Dharmapuri and Hogenakkal. The second one is Bengaluru, Haleseebam, Palakkodu, Dharmapuri-Hogenakkal road and Hogenakkal. The third one is Bengaluru, Hosur, Denkanakottai, Andevanapalli, Anchetty, Billigundala , Dharmapuri-Hogenakkal Road and Hogenakkal. Along with my friends i choose third route. First and second routes are through Highway and third one is through forest. The road is far better than we expect . The distance is around 120 Km from Electronic city to Hogenakkal Falls.
The journey in third route via forest is good . We see hills both sides of the road. Be careful while driving through forest. There are many hair pin curves on ghat roads in the forest. While taking curves be cautious. We see more people selling fishes in Hogenakkal. . We get a small fish for Rs 10. If you are a sea food lover, it's your day. There is an entry fee to go near the Falls. We see so many falls nearby.
The main Hogenakkal Falls are 1 km away from the falls what we see nearby entrance. We reach there by local coracles. The coracle operators charge around 150-200 per person. Better we ask for life jackets. After 10 min we reach another place. From there we have to walk another half a kilometer to reach main Hogenakkal falls. There is again entry fee of 5 Rs per person . The view of the Hogenakkal Falls is awesome.
