Jog Falls

This picturesque waterfall is over the Sharavathi Roiver in the Shimpga District. This fall originates from the meeting point of four cascades known as Raja, Rani, Rover and Rocket. The waterfall is locally also known as the Gersuppo Falls or the Jogada Gundi. The best part about these falls is that the water does not touch the rocks when it flows down and because of this the Jog Falls has been rated as the tallest un- tiered waterfall of the country. There are also a number of points from where the view of the lush greenery everywhere is visible. The best out of all is the Watkins Point. Other than this, you can also do some adventurous hiking downslope and take a plunge into the cool waters of the fall. The Swarnavati Riverbank and the Sharavathi Valley are also breathtaking. The nearby attractions include the Dabbe Waterfalls, Linganamakki Dam, Tunga Anicut Dam, Thyvare Koppa Lion and the Tiger Reserve.

We went to the mighty Jog Falls around 11 in the morning. Since it was the beginning of monsoon, the place was cool enough and the water was just starting to fill. Some of us enjoyed the view from the top while some took the trek to climb down some 500 steps or so to check the different view. The trek down the stairs is also good, with some weird orientations fully covered with lush green tress everywhere. We got down, enjoyed the views , took some photos and came back.
