Hogenakkal is a small town in Tamil Nadu on the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka border, which is known for its waterfall. The Hogenakkal Waterfall is a famous picnic spot. It is located at a height of 750 feet in the Melagiri Hills. Its water is said to have healing powers.

Hogenakkal Waterfalls, called as the Niagara of India are a sequence of falls. The wide flow of the Kaveri River gets split at this point, forms an island and plunges into a deep gulf to create one of the most beautiful waterfalls. The rocks thus get there name as Hogenakkal, which means ‘smoking rock’.
