Hogenekkal Tour pictures-Beauty Of the River 'Kauveri' Photos of Aerial view of Rocks,Basket boats,Water falls using cellphones and digital cameras..

One of the famous waterfalls in Tamilnadu state/ India. Visit the place if you want to enjoy the exciting basket boat journey through the river Kauveri.

'Hogenakkel' is a kannada word and it means "Smoking Rock". You will feel the name to be apt, once you visit the place. Yea the rocks are always smoking , not cigarettes but fumes of water droplets are always in the air near them!!!

The people here believes that the water which is flowing through the wild forest has medicinal value for it is flowing over medicinal plants in the forest throughout its course. The best time to visit the place is just after the monsoon (july-august) when the water falls are in its full strength.
We visited the place as a part of our academic tour programme. This was the most exciting place among the entire tour programme.

We happened to be there in off season ie during the month of January. So don't expect the place to be like this if you are going there in the right time. You will be seeing more parallel water falls and a strong furious river if you are there just after the monsoon.

Just have a feast on the photos of the vibrant adventurous river journey and those cute basket boats..You can see the aerial view of the whole place shot from a look out placed in a height..

Don't be afraid. They are trained people. Do you know, they have to row the boats through harsh river currents and save 3, (3 or 5 am not sure) drowning people alone from the river to acquire their liscence as boat men.
