Hogenakal is a water fall located in South India formed by river Kaveri. It is located in the Dharmapuri district of Tamil Nadu. It is 750 meters above the sea level. Locally it is referred to as Cauvery. The word Hogenakal is formed by two Kannada words "Hoge"(smoke) and "Kallu" (stone), together meaning Smoking rocks. When the water falls on the rocks, due to the force, it seems as though smoke is emanating from the rocks. At Hogenakkal, the river spreads out over a wide variety of sandy beaches. Hogenakkal is surrounded by Melagiri hills in the backdrops.
