A best place to be visited in august . You don't need any guide for exploring jog falls. Ask directions from local people . I started my trip from banglore ,the distance was around 420 km . From jog falls we went to gokarna and the distance was 112.km . The worst thing was the route . Except that everyhing was perfect. In Gokarna you can find 3 beaches . Resorts were loacted near beach.
