After having seen the breathtaking falls, the next most attractive place of Hogenakkal are the Melagiri Hills. The Hills are a few km away and various trekking options upto the hill add to the thrill of finally seeing the ranges.
The hills are the point where the Eastern and Western Ghats meet each other. With two mountain ranges converging from both the sides, and dense forests all around the place, the view is simply sublime. You can also spot one horned antelopes in these valleys.
