It’s a famous place. As soon as you land there, the coracle guy informs us about it’s claim to fame – it was featured in the movie Roja.

I shall have to go back and watch Roja sometime, I make a note.

The Hogenakkal falls itself is quite spectacular, with water gushing out through several channels and falling down a height of 5-20 metres at different places. Since it’s the height of the monsoons when we visited, the river is at its fullsome best, gushing out with abandon and fervour.

  1. You most certainly should watch the movie (or at least the song). If there was a movie that celebrates the natural beauty in the Indian outdoors, it was this movie.

    Great pic, btw…

  2. @ sathish: buttermilk? no! didn’t see it anywhere!

    @ sampath: i like b/w 🙂 also, this was taken when my dslr went for servicing and i had a film camera with a b/w roll in it! but there are some colour pics also that i took in someone else’s camera.

    @ Shantanu: i am going to buy it next time i get a chance!

  3. I was at Hogenekkal in April, though no water as u see in the pic at that time, a wonderful experience. Great place to go atleast once in a year. Songs in the movies, ‘Asoka’ ‘Guru’ too was picturised here.
