Jog Falls, Shimoga

4.1
#1 of 17 in Things to do in Shimoga
One of the highest plunge waterfalls in India, Jog Falls are formed by the Sharavathi River and drop some 253 m (830 ft). Get up on one of the platforms or nearby viewpoints and enjoy the vista of the four rushing cascades taking their dramatic, straight plunge down the jagged cliff side. The falls are at their most thunderous and plentiful during monsoon season, but even if you visit in the drier months, you will still be rewarded with a scenic view of the cascades surrounded by a luscious forest. Plan your visit to Jog Falls and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Shimoga trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Shimoga

A major regional town and regular base of explorations, Shivamogga has a decent set of accommodations to cater to its guests. Lying mainly southwest of Shivamogga Town Railway Station, a set of hotels and guesthouses offers some upmarket, business-class options, as well as refreshingly simple lodgings designed for outdoor adventurers. Take a look at some places closer to the Tunga River if you want a little removal from the city, through most people are happy enough with the bit of instant green afforded by Gandhi Park in the middle of town.
