Hogenakkal
Sightseeing and Falls

Hogenakkal Falls is a waterfall in South India on the Kaveri River in the Dharmapuri district of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The word Hogenakal is formed of two Kannada words hoge and kal. Carbonatite rocks in this site are considered to be the oldest of its kind in South Asia and one of the oldest in the world. The Government of Tamil Nadu made a proposal to convert the falls into providing drinking water for the state. The Kaveri is considered to form at Talakaveri in the Brahmagiri hills in the Western Ghats of south India and gathers momentum as the land drops in elevation. It becomes larger as various tributaries feed into it on the way down.

Sometimes referred to as the "Niagara Falls of India," it is known for medicinal baths and hide boat rides, projecting itself as a major tourist attraction
