Hogenakkal – The Niagara Fall of India

Distance from Bengaluru is 180 kms. Time approximately 3 – 4 hours by car.


Backdrop to many movies, the main attraction of this fall is its amazing vertical drop from a height of 20m. The sheer drop is breathtaking, and when it hits the rocks, emitting sprays of mists, the sight justifies its name. The drive through the shortest route takes you via Langford Road, Madivala Road and NH7, along with a detour from Dharmapuri. An excellent driving experience with double lanes, less traffic, clear signboards and verdant green Ghats with lush greenery makes it a memory you will cherish for a lifetime.

Chikmagalur is famous for its lush green forests, mountains, coffee plantations, wonderful climate, waterfalls, wildlife sanctuary and the Mullayanagiri peak – the highest in Karnataka. The most adventurous part of Mullayanagiri peak is to drive uphill, the road gets narrower as you drive up. Driving from Bengaluru to Chikmagalur on NH75 via Kunigal, Hasan, Belur is a dream as the road is smooth, wide and with no traffic congestions. Watching the scenery change from dry to abundant greenery is an experience itself in this journey.
