We visited Hogenakkal in the first week of feb 2021. Weekdays are best to visit the place to avoid crowds and best experience this beauty of nature. The place has hundred of coracle boat riders. So when u reach the spot , you are surrounded by a hawks who want to convince u for a ride, a massage or food. We were lucky to reach reviews and book mr Venkatachalam 9943878854(speak Tamil and Kannada) . He didn't demand anything and made sure we enjoyed every minute on the boat. He took us to all the falls and every single spot. ₹750 is the go to fees to take a ride. Which is a 1 hour ride to the 5 fall area. But we were taken to all Sides of karnataka fall, cini falls ,a island beach like area we even had bath under the small falls by getting out of the coracle. Would recommend this boat rider. We happily Tipped him for for his effort ₹1200 which was a good 3 hours of full fun🤟

We planned for this trip based on many Youtube channel reviews. But "Appearances are deceptive". This a very small place where you can enjoy the rawness of nature. The kaveri river flows into Tamil nadu with a beautiful scenic views. We travelled from Chennai via NH48 on car. It took 7 hrs to reach hokkenakkal. We booked rooms in TamilNadu Tourism Development Corporation(TTDC). Only this place suitable for family stays. None other Lodge are clean and tidy. TTDC has a restaurant within and provides a decent food. Please don't prefer fish fry because it was not cooked properly and tasted the worse. Veg meals and Gobi fry was very good. They also provide a complimentary breakfast with a menu of 2 idlies,1 vada,1 scoop of pongal and sambar chutneys. TTDC rooms don't have geysers, they provide hot water in buckets on request. The falls is divided into ladies and gents side. The gents area is open and gives a real feel of bathing in waterfalls whereas the ladies side is completely covered like a bathroom and water falls through the pipes. Ladies side will not give a feel like bathing in water falls and it also stinks with bleach powder smell. The hanging bridge gives a good view of the river and the falls. They cost Rs.5 for visiting it. The parisal ride was amusing as the water level was less. But it will be a great risk if the water level is high. The government costs Rs.750 for 3 people to ride in a parisal for 1 hour. They provide life jackets in poor condition, it doesn't even hook properly. The parisal riders will request for tips , we paid Rs.200. Pros: 1. Beautiful scenic views are assured. 2. Parisal ride will be amusing . 3. hanging bridge gives a awesome view of the river. 4, Bathing in falls will be good for men side. Cons: 1. Parisal riders, fish cooking women , oil massagers will keep following you everywhere. As soon as you enter the spot a bunch of people will follow us and force us to come with them for parisal ride and oil massage. 2. They sell fishes and also cook in the same place. Based on the youtube review we were interested in tasting those food, but when we saw the way it is cooked we felt like puking and couldn't stand in that place too. 3. The oil massage place are also very unclean. 4. Food sold around the falls are not hygienic. When we went out for a night walk, we were shocked to see those fish fry sellers keeping those masala coated fishes into ice boxes for next day sale. 5. You can see monkeys everywhere. They even pluck water bottles from hands so walking with food items or planning to eat in and around the tourist spot will be more tough. 6. Parisal riders force us to pay extra for visiting places which is restricted by government. You can visit those places if you like take risks. 7. Those cooking women washes clothes and vessels in the same place where people take bath in the falls. Final Verdict People who loves adventures can opt to visit this place. This is not a decent place for a family trip. Most of the people visiting this place come for boozing and chilling out. Never eat food around the falls and its gonna damage your health badly.

We had left Bangalore at 6.am and reached hogenikal at 11am. In case if you all go in a group than can buy the fish and give it to them to cook the food. They cook the fish so tasty. Very nice to have the fish curry rice. Incase if we use boating than have to pay for boating , for that government cost is 750rs for 3people per boat for 45minutes. If you like extra ride for 3hours than can pay additional 2000rs per boat so that they will take you and show you all the places . Boat men VENKATACHALAM, KUMAR AND VENKATESH, davidwere so helpful and polite. They showed us everything. They were so nice and warm. Special thanks to Mr. VENKATACHALAM(mobile number 09943878854 )who was so customer friendly and helpful.you can contact him before going to hogenikal in advance so that he will arrange boating and will show you all the places nicely. The guy in blue t shirt is Mr VENKATACHALAM.
