Banglore ,City full of Serviceclass.After 5 days of work everyone wanted to get relax.Banglore and places near to the city provides amid opportunities to all of them.
Last weekend we planned to travel to “HOGENAKKAL FALLS”.Somewhere around 160 kms from banglore,in the way to chennai..Basically its a part of TN. This fall on Cauvery river provides a refreshing welcome to all the visitors.
There are total 3 big falls and several small falls. Only way to visit these falls is by a boat. There are rounded boats in which maximum 6 people can sit. Once you start with your journey you will come across the biggest waterfall that is known as Tamilnadu waterfall. You need to get down from your boat and walk up to see this fall, in the meantime your boatman will carry the boat on his shoulder.
After visiting this fall u will start the 2 nd phase of your journey in the river. In this part you will come to see a lot of small falls. In mid river u will find floating boats which used to sell water ,cold drinks and eateables.After 45 minutes this stretch of river comes to an end and you need to get down. This time you need to walk down for 1.5 Kms .This is TN-KA border, you need to walk down the distance and you can find fresh fried fishes to eat .After walking this distance you will see the 2 nd biggest water fall which is known as Karnataka Falls. Over here flow is still and you can get shallow water level for bath.
Now From here boat takes turn and go back to the place where the journey got started. After this boat trip we moved towards the third fall which have a hanging bridge over it. They have created one platform for bath over there but for ladies its not that good. You can find an amazing rainbow on this waterfall.
There are some message waalas sits over there with different kind of oils with them .try once.
