Jog Falls - At Nature's Majestic Best
The Jog Falls is perhaps the most stunning example of nature's majesty. The falls originate from the Sharavathi River and consist of four distinct segments and these are Raja, Rani, Rover and Rocket.
The Crystal Cascades of Jog
The sight of this magnificent sheet of water cascading straight down a height of 830 feet unfettered by rocks or other encumbrances is one that has moved thousands of visitors. The beauty of this view is enhanced by the natural beauty of its lush green surroundings.
There are several vantage points from where you can witness the splendor of Jog Falls. One of the most popular ones is the Watkins platform. Getting down to the base of the falls and then climbing back can be a tough and tasking trek, and this is specially meant for the ones who like to stretch their muscles.
Being a popular tourist destination, Jog Falls has good transport connectivity. The nearest town is Sagara in the Shimoga district of Karnataka. There are plenty of buses between Sagara and Jog Falls and you can also take a bus from Karwar or Hanovar.
The Jog Falls are at their best during the monsoons as the volume of the water is at its maximum. Other attractions include the forests around Jog, the Swarna Nadi River as well as the Sharavati valley.
