Hogenakal (Tamil Nadu)

  • Hogenakal has developed, with the passage of time, a prime tourist destination of Tamil Nadu. It lies 114 kms away from Salem, at the border of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Hogenakal is situated in rugged but magnificent mountainous region. The place is endowed with one of the finest waterfalls in the state of Tamil Nadu. The fine spray of water that arises as the cascading water hits the rocks below, has given these rocks the name Hogenakal which means Smoking Rock in Kannada. The three hills, Melagiri, Toppur and Poonachi Betta, the thick wooded forest, the birds and beasts add enchantment to the scenery. The place presents a beautiful panorama of endless hill ranges. Bathing in the water falls is considered good as the water flows through the forest over many medicinal herbs. In view of its popularity, the place has been developed as a popular holiday resort.
