Hogennakal – Beyond Bliss…

This is one place that you should never miss… especially if you are on the either side of the border… Across the Tamil Nadu / Karnataka Border, you can go and visit this place… Beautiful falls where many movies have shot their panaromic scenes, Roja for one… Remember Dil Hain Chotta Sa??

 

Well anyways, so I rose up early in the morning and decided to head towards Hogennakal. The best way to reach there is to catch a direct bus from Salem Bus station, else you also have an option of going to Dharmapuri and from there to Hogennakalu. P.S It’s also the place where Veerappan used to dwell somewhere in the deep jungles near the Karnataka & Tamil Nadu Border…

My early morning breakfast, where I ate a really amazing double dosa :) While I was doing that, this guy was like a ‘Masterchef’ dishing out some Malabari Parota… he was so quick in making them that you would just awe at the whole experience…

That’s the Malabari Parota I didn’t eat :P

 

Visit the Aquarium, right near the Bus Stand… as soon as you reach Hogennakal,  after about a 3 hours ride on the bus, which by the way just costs Rs.  26, thanks to the truly inexpensive and amazing Tamil Nadu State Transportation :)

Crocodile Park

Crocodile Park & Rehabilitation Center

 

This is one thing you have got to visit… You can see the crocodiles up close and personal, is a completely different experience… A lot of them are severly injured… Of course, due to fights amongst themselves. But the real fear of this animal strikes you in the eye… even though they are lazy and slow, they are some creatures not to mess with… P.S Entry to this center is Rs. 1. 1 Km from Bus stand…

Once you are done with the crocodile park, head straight to the Main falls… On the way, you can take a few pics of scenic falls, but really, don’t bother as you will get great views when you go down and take a ride in the single oar boat… They also serve, cold drinks and chips on other boats around you.. :)
