Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Travelled to Jog fall on October 1st week...Absolutly not a great experience ...badly any water...can be avoided..attaching few pictures 
  • Superb Water falls. One of the Highest water falls in India. Sutiated 20Kms from Sagara town. Should visit in Rainy season to enjoy the falls. One can go till the depth of the water falls through the stairs to enjoy the water falls.
  • Must visit place once in your lifetime. Especially in rainy season, in summer, the water will be diverted for hydro-electric generation and there will be very little water to watch. The view of the waterfall is breath-taking. Local auto rickshaws can take you around the falls to get a 360 view of the valley including the power station. But don't try to venture near the falls from the backside as many deaths have been reported. Also the stairs to the bottom of the falls have been recently blocked.
  • Don't bother visiting in the non-monsoon months. We went in November where the falls were but a trickle, as you can see in the photos - but still, you could feel the magnificence of the place. The park is beautiful, and there's a set of railings where you can go all the way down (be prepared for a long climb back up!). All in all, leaves me wishing I was in Karnataka in the monsoon. So unless you have plenty of time to kill in your itinerary - don't bother coming here post monsoon. It's too out of the way, and you're much better off spending time at the beaches.
  • Lovely place to visit on the way to goa from bangalore or chennai
