Around 180 km from Bangalore, Hogenakkal is a small village in Tamil Nadu famous for its scenic waterfalls. It is also called 'Niagara of India'. It stands true to the literal meaning of its name, which means 'smoke from rocks'. It has multiple waterfalls from all of which water pours at such great force that it gives the impression of emanating smoke. Hogenakkal is also famous for medicinal baths.
Though there is not much of a shopping section in Hogenakkal, massage oils are the most sold. You can get hold of one small container before you take a dip in the water believed to have curative properties. Another favorite with locals and tourists alike is the famous fried fish.
There are a lot of small make-shift eat-out places that sell fried fish around the banks of the river. Depending on the one that you find most hygienic you can take your pick. But do try it before you take a reverse gear. The fish is smeared with a mix of spices that give it a bright reddish orange tinge.
February is said to be the best time to visit Hogenakkal when the climate is also favorable.
