Jog Falls, Shimoga

(4.1/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • It was a breath taking experience. There is such a strong force when you are near the falls but at the same time a calming feeling. It makes you have that connection with the nature. Truly, How Great Feeling!!! An Amazing Experience. Especilly with my Boyfriend
  • Amazing place., Wonderful experience especially if you go at rainy season., You get tired for walking down & up on that footsteps around 1000 butyou will forget it when you land on water falls down there and see.. -visited this place in 2013 I think two eyes are not enough for holding it's beauty...#Jog_falls #Karnataka #India
  • Fun family outing location. Enjoyable by people if all ages. The view is breathtaking
  • Awesome place to feel the refreshment of Jog falls. Better to visit during monsoon season to have a beautiful view of falls. Cops/watchman at the entrance behaves like an angry elf😡
