There are boat rides available in these round boats which are pretty fun to do. You can take these rides and spend some time on the shores. Get some decent enough fish fry to eat. However, there are open air massage parlours along the falls which is pretty weird.

A must see place with breathtaking views and the thrilling coracle ride! But unfortunately the place is not maintained properly, You can see plastic and food waste everywhere even in the river, there are sign boards placed which tells to keep the place clean but is of no use. "KIDS BELOW 7 YEARS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN CORACLE RIDE"

Nature at its scenic beauty. Best to visit before summers, where the rivers wont dry. People throwing plastics and the alcohol glass bottles makes this place dirty. Attention needed as most of the places are raw in nature. Visitors should maintain discipline, don't throw plastics, don't drink.

Hogenekkal falls is good, but the place is not maintained well, if maintained well it will be one among the top tourist destination. It is not good for families to visit, many people from in and around throng to this place to eat fish and body massage. Body massages are done openly, you can see everyone half naked, and it...

Please avoid this place if you have better alternatives. The place was not at all good looking. Cloths were scattered all over the water streams. People taking oil massage were almost naked. There were no proper enclosures for oil massages. Overall the place looked sick and there was no proper administration.

The place is made extremely dirty by people paying visit for massage and bathing. They loiter the place and the water streams as well. Also the basic hygiene level and cleanliness is extremely poor. Avoid hanging bridge and the main falls. The only point of attraction is the boating and to the waterfall streams the sailor takes you to. Extremely... More
