Situated on the Karnataka - Tamil Nadu border, Hogenakal is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the state. The broad stream of the River Cauvery gets forked at this point, forming an island from where one stream continues on while it plunges into a deep chasm to create one of the loveliest waterfall gives these rocks the name Hogenakal which means "smoking rock" in Kannada. Since the waters of the kauvery flow through a forest of herbs on their journey to Hogenakal, bathing in these falls is considered to be good for health.

The magnificent, rugged mountain scenery around the falls can be better enjoyed by long walks and treks.

Hogenakkal Falls is a quiet beautiful waterfall and is a good picnic spot and also its water supposed to have curative powers as the waters of the Kaveri flow through a forest of herbs on their journey to Hogenakkal. Hogenakkal Waterfalls, known as the 'Niagara' falls of India.

This riverside spa is famous for coracles, masseurs and roaring waters. The sound of the Kaveri River, roaring between rocky banks, is a constant presence in most places in Hogenakkal. 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.
