    Hogenakkal falls is iconic not only to the state of Tamilnadu but to India itself. The majestic falls manifests as river Kaveri gathers volume from its various tributaries and cuts through the carbonatite rock gorges in the Dharmapuri district of Tamilnadu.      The falls is nothing but spectacular and attracts various tourists mainly from states of Tamilnadu, Kerala, Andhra and Karnataka every year. The falls also contributes to the economy of the region in a massive way. 
     We had made a trip 7 years back when the sight and environment instantly made us big fans of the falls. We made a trip recently and was happy to see the falls again but was also taken aback by the untidy maintenance around there. Clothes were thrown from bathing area that were stuck in steel poles and tree branches and also floating on the river. Plastic bottles were forming a whirlpool and floating on water. The place promises immense potential and does not deserve such bad treatment from visitors. While visitors mentality has to change to be more responsible and not to wreck the tourist place, the officials can surely put sterner laws and protocols in place to ensure cleanliness and thereby preserve the nature. 


Nature lovers and environmentalists, please sign this to show your support to preserve this proud icon of India before its beyond redemption.
