  • Trip introduction

    Embark on an easy day trek from Bangalore, take a coracle ride on the Kaveri River, explore smoky black carbonatite rocks and spend a day in the hidden backwaters of Hogenakkal. This trek you to the state borders of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, to a quaint old town called Hogenakkal, where the roaring Kaveri River meets the black and white hills and boulders to form the gorgeous Hogenakkal Waterfall. Apart from the trek that'll take you past river stream and plush greenery, you'll take a coracle ride and travel over the Kaveri River on large wicker basket-style round boats.

    Often called the 'Niagara Falls of India', the waterfall of the Kaveri River at Hogenakkal is popular for the boulders and cliffs made from some of the oldest, smoky black carbonatite rocks in south Asia. The channels of the waterfall feature raging rapids and twisting turns, often with drops of 15-65 feet. The waterfalls are a popular, local destination for treks and boat rides.
