Create an itinerary including Jog Falls
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. Arrange your visit to Jog Falls and discover more family-friendly attractions in Shimoga using our Shimoga itinerary website.

  • Jog fall is a famous place and call it mini Niagara Fall. But it’s not that great. We went in peak rainfall time but still it was not that great. If you are close by you can visit this place once.
