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.
This mountain in the Shivamoga Region is one of the most spoken about treks of Karnataka. There are two temples of the Mookambika Devi and the Adi Shankara Temple on top of the peak. These temples are both covered in between dense and misty forests and this is also an adventure when you visit these. There are two routes that you can choose from while trekking here- One is the Karekatte and the other is the Marekuttaka. The views and beauty around is wonderful and it is like a nature trail cum adventure trip here.
Your final pitstop for the day can be the world-renowned Murudeshwar Temple, thanks to its second-tallest Shiva statue in the world. It's really not just the physical stature of the deity that is to see here, it's more the ethereal beauty that takes your breath away. The temple is built on the Kanduka Hill, surrounded by the Arabian Sea on three sides. A 20-storied structure is built close to the statue so that the latter's magnanimity can be enjoyed to the fullest.Come back to Om Beach
Anmol The Family Cuisine
I did some research earlier about the good vegetarian reataurant(Yes, we all are pure vegetarians). Few of them were Anmol Multi Cuisine Restaurant, Meenakshi Bhavan etc. We went to Anmol Multi Cuisine Restaurant. Unfortunately, they were not taking Main course orders before 12 PM. We didn't have the patience to go to any other restaurant. Therefore, We ordered Idli, Dosa, Puri and few other breakfast items. Quality and quantity was good. Also, the price was decent.After finishing our Brunch, we moved to Ashoka Grand to check in. Booking was made from 24th June for 24 hour period. Best part is that there are no constraints in the timing part. Check in can be done at any time and 24 hours are calculated from that point onward.For Images of the hotel, please refer google images.Ours was non AC rooms and it was quite big offering enough space to put an extra bed. Tariff Charged was 2900 for 2 double bedded Rooms(3+2). We directly crashed on the bed after completing the formalities.Again, woke up at 5 PM and decided to explore the beautiful Shivamoga city and travelled to the merging point of Tunga and Bhadra River(Around 20 KMs from Hotel). Then we went to City Centre mall to hang around and had dinner at Dominos.
