Photographer's Note

Hogenakkal Waterfalls, known as the 'Niagara' falls of India, are not a single waterfalls but a series of falls and they offers a promising holiday destination for nature lovers from and outside the country.

The coracles or circular basket boat ride will take to the foot the majestic waterfalls an exhilarating yet intimidating experience. The water here surges under the coracle, tossing it around, raging and hissing as though it might flood and capsize the boat any moment. The sight of Hogenakkal up close is as spellbinding, imposing and even a bit frightening. This white waterfall is particularly impressive soon after the monsoon months when the river is brimming.

At Hogenakkal, the Kaveri river enters the plains and the river dashing against the rocks is a great sight. The river, here flows through a wooded valley, splitting and merging and splitting again around rocks, and little islands with towering trees, and boulder-strewn out crops, which are covered only when the river is in spate with the rains of the monsoon.
