The Hogenakkal Falls, also referred to the Niagara of India, are located in the Dharmapuri District of Tamil Nadu. The word means ‘smoking rock’, a name derived from the cloud of mist and spray that envelopes the falls, as the River Kaveri descends, through rocky terrain.
Several majestic falls are created as the water cuts through the rocks, in some places falling from a height of as much as 20 m. The waters at Hogenakkal are known for their curative powers, and bathing in the river is a popular activity.
Also popular are rides in coracles, primitive, light, bowl-shaped boats with a frame of woven grasses, reeds, or saplings covered with hides. Hogenakkal offers a quiet holiday among natural beauty.

Coracles are available for boating in the streams. A track leading to the narrow stretch of the Cauvery nearby involves a climb up a hill amidst tropical bush and thick vegetation.
