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.

The views and beauty around is wonderful and it is like a nature trail cum adventure trip here.
