Jog Falls, Shimoga

(600+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
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.

  • Gem of a waterfall.. Roaring in monsoon.. Nice facilities for viewing from various points.. Good car parking space.. Great experience..
  • Really Fantastic to see the mighty JOG falls. Every indian should go and see this falls. Try to go early and check with the security guards if they are going to allow you to climb down to the bottom. Must be still beautiful to look at the falls from the ground level. Make sure you are physically fit before you even attempt to go down.
  • Awesome experience of the sight and sound of water falling from great heights. Understand it looks still better in monsoon. Nice place to hang out with friends and family.
  • Its Managarumale movie has made the stint of visiting the falls and my ex- girl friend who hails from here. Its very nice if you visit in the months of june to october where the water falls will be more.....
  • Very nice in monsoon. Get down by stairs to see the waterfall up-close.
