Jog Falls, Karnataka Travel Guide

Jog Falls is the second highest waterfalls in India which is situated in the Shimoga district of Karnataka State. This is a major tourist attraction of the Karnataka State. Jog lies in the Sagar taluk on the way towards Honnavar. The falls is generated by the river Sharavati. Monsoon would be the ideal time to visit. Sharavati River directly falls from a height of 830 ft in four different streams. The falls is also known as the Gerusoppe falls. Sharavati River, along with other tributaries falls in four different streams in Jog. Sharavati originates in Ambuteertha ?a place in the Shimoga district. The different four streams are named as ?Raja, Rani, Roarer and the Rocket according to the way they fall from the height. The magnificence of all the four streams comes alive during monsoon. Raja Falls is elegant, Rani Falls like a coquettish damsel, Roarer roars and the Rocket falls like a jet. Jog Falls can be viewed from two points: one from the Mysore Bungalow point and the other from the Bombay Bungalow point. From the Bombay Bungalow point lying on a flat rock slab you would get a mesmerizing, breath- taking view of the falls. All the four distinct falls appear wild and enchanting from there. But, if you happen to visit in summer all the four falls go thin since the flow of the river water would be less. However, you can still cherish the lush green ambience surrounding the falls. Sharavati water is used for hydro-electricity in a place called Linganamakki, near the Sharavati dam site. The dam started functioning in the year 1948 and since then it has been serving as a major power station for the people of Karnataka. Linganamakki dam site is a place of attraction. Also visit Honnemurudu ? a backwater reservoir and Muppane wildlife sanctuary nearby. Jog Falls is well connected to Bangalore, Mangalore, Goa, Mysore and Hubli by road. It is better to travel in a private vehicle. There are plenty of tourist packages available from Bangalore ?the State Capital. It is better if you make your stay in Shimoga (105 km) or in Sagar(30 km). The nearest railway station connecting other states is Hubli junction.
