Hogenakkal in Winter (November - February)

Watch the glory of nature take over Hogenakkal, as the south-west monsoon showers the region with about 150 mm of rainfall between these months. Hogenakkal is a sight to behold in the rain, as the Kaveri comes alive and usually floods her banks. While adventure enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies throng Hogenakkal in the monsoon, it is not recommended for tourists as the currents are too strong to swim in. Boating is not allowed either, and there is no standard means of transportation to reach the waterfalls. It is best to avoid the river, as the water flow may be too heavy. Further downhill, you can go rafting if you prefer, although discretion is advised. The waterfalls are a sight to behold, as they live up to their name of the ‘Smoking Rocks’ – the sultry mist as the water strikes the rocks covers the base in a myriad of colours. Rainbows adorn the falls and the scene is postcard-perfect.

Hogenakkal in Summer (March - June)

The Indian Peninsula lies in the tropics, and is known for its sweltering summer heat. Temperatures soar to a maximum of 35°C in April, which is the hottest month of the year here. The water flow is minimal, and there are few waterfalls to reckon during these summer months. Most small waterfalls dry up. The rock facades are magnificent, though. The jagged rocks and steep gorges make for picture-perfect views, and have been featured in many films as well.

A dip in Hogenakkal Lake may prove fruitful during the summer, as the cool water calms and rejuvenates you. A dip in the river is easier in summer as well, as water level is minimal, and there are not many currents. This is the best time to test your swimming skills, but be warned that in some places, water levels may be too low – bedrock may hurt you. While the waters are a welcome respite from the heat, this may not be the best bet for people who are light-headed and prone to dehydration. Take a bottle of water with you as you explore the woods near the waterfalls. Summer evenings are good for hiking, as the paths are dry and the evenings are comfortable. There is more daylight too. A summer visit to Hogenakkal is not recommended for families as it may get too hot for children and the elderly, but travellers on a budget can enjoy trekking at the nearby Melagiri Hills and swimming here during this time.
