Default Hyderabad - Hogenakkal : Route Queries

Hi Guys,
Today I came to Hosur from Hyderabad and it was an excellent drive I had. Tomorrow I am planning to go for HOgenakkal Falls and I would like to know the route details. My friends told me there is a way via Raikota which is shorter than the Krishnagiri-Dharmapuri route. Is this road better. Suggestions highly appreciated.

Avoid the rayakotta road. The GQ is a way better option.

yes the Raikottai road is shorter, but not very good. If you like winding roads in not so great condition but with a scenic drive, you can take it.

Hosur->Krishnagiri is GQ. Then its NH7 till Dharmapuri. Its being converted to a 4 laner. So traffic is slow. Dharmapuri to Hogenekkal is ok kinda road.

Actually after Krishnagiri->Kaveripattnam there is a right which joins the Hosur->Raikottai->Dharmapuri route. You can take that as well if you are adventurous and know tamil.

Thank you csentil. Is the raikotta road is too bad with potholes? Can I do 50 to 60 kmph at least??

Hi,
Take Denkanikota route instead of Rayakottai...
Road till Denkanitkota is excellent and newly laid...I think it will be better / improved after that as well...
I suggest u try out:
Hosur - Denaknikota - Anchati - Pennagaram- Hogenakkal falls

Dont take the right turn from Kaveripatnam, it is very bad near palakodu

Abhi

Hi,
Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately I was not able to see your message. I have taken the right turn from Kaveripatnam and as u said, it was in a very bad condition for almost 10 km. After that it was okay. Anyway I had a great experience riding to Hogenakkal. The water flow was more and we could not get to the main falls in the boat. But, it was a great experience watching the falls. woudl post the details in a seperate thread.

Default re: Hyderabad - Hogenakkal : Route Queries

Couldn't find a better thread to ask...
I am planning a visit to Hogenakkal from Bangalore. Google maps suggests three routes

1. Thro denkanikottai
2. Thro Rayakottai
3. Thro Dharmapuri.

Which one is good at this time? Also, I would like to avoid narrow roads. (2 lanes are fine though)

The one via Dharmapuri is the fast. Take the 4-lane via Krishnagiri to Dharmapuri and then head to Hogenakkal via Pennagaram.
