JOG FALLS:

When you are in Matthuga, you are just 5 to 7 minutes away from the world famous, the most magnificent and picturesque falls in Karnataka-India, JOG FALLS. Set in the wild and exotic surrounding of the river Sharavathi, this majestic falls drops nearly nine hundred feet in the form of four main channels namely Raja, Roarer, Rocket and Rani. Watching Jog falls during the monsoons can be an unforgettable experience. The mist around makes the setting magical to view.

Even though the quantity of water in Jog Falls during monsoon is huge and gives an amazing sight, watching world famous jog falls during other seasons specially in the early mornings and evenings, even though with less water, gives you a very different experience.

Sharavati Valley view point is also very close by to the place.

Don't forget to witness the recently started "Musical Fountain and laser Show" at Jog falls.

Jog Falls at its best!
