Jog Falls, Karnataka Tour, India.

Click me to see ALL PHOTOS:

Jog Falls, created by the Sharavathi River falling from a height of 253 meters (829 ft), is the highest plunge waterfall in India, Located in Shimoga District of Karnataka state, these segmented falls are a major tourist attraction.

Associated with the waterfall is the nearby Linganmakki Dam across river Sharavathi, and the hydro-electric power station that it serves. The power station has been operational since 1949, and is, at 1200 MW capacity.

We(Udhaya, Sandeep, Suman, Rajesh) have started from Bangalore in car on Friday night, We reached Sagar at 7.00 am morning and stayed in hotel(VARADASHREE, BH RAOD, Sagar-577401, Phone (08183) 228899, 228999, 9242226788). This is the only one good hotel we can get this nearby, WE are not booked the hotel, but if you want go with family , then you have to book it and go. If you want take fresh/rest. Jog falls is 30 KM from sagar. Totally jog falls is 430 km from Bangalore.

We reached Jog fall at 11.00 AM & went down near to water. Its very easy to godown, but it took more time to come back. Any way its very safe trucking. After this place we reached Honnemardu Back Water. Its really good place but we wont found any entertainment other then small boating. Chikkander Temple, its one more good place to see. We started back to Bangalore on Saturday night and reached Bangalore on Sunday., 5.00 AM.
