Hogenakkal Falls are around 120 kms from Bangalore but it takes over 3 hours to get there with hardly any places to stop and get a decent meal or coffee. The site is quite disappointing when you get there. It was hot (over 36 degrees)...More

May being the hottest season it wouldn’t be a very pleasant experience for viewing the waterfall - in fact water will also be very paltry. It’s not a wise decision to visit Hogenakkal falls during first week of May
