Any trip to Hoganekkal is incomplete without a ride down river Caveri on a Parisal. Nothing has changed here from my last trip in 2007. It was disheartening to see the beautiful river littered with plastic and beer bottles. Tourists, especially youngsters, need more sensitivity. Tourism department also should wakeup and make the place more organized in terms of parking facilities, pollution control, hygiene and toilet facilities. I remember writing the same in my 2007 post.
