“Monsoon wonder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Jog falls in Shimoga district, Karnataka are the highest in the land. 4 different cataracts gush down - Raja, Rani, Rocket and Roarer making for a bewitching site. However, it is important to visit in the monsoon period as the water becomes more of a trickle in summers. The route down to the falls is well laid and protected. You can see many exotic birds and butterflies all around. I only wish some areas of the forest around could be trekked through to provide a closer look at the flora and fauna.

“Jog Falls - Majestic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Jog Falls - Second largest plunge waterfall in India ( first one being nowhere near i.e in Meghalayala) ... Awesome weather... Misty and Raining... You climb down and njoy the cool water, even though climbing back those 1400 odd steps can be quite a tedious task... Njoyed the cool weather ... Should visit for the Nature lovers!!

“Jog Falls - mesmerizing view of natural water fall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Jog-falls is most wonderful scenario of water mass falling from such a great height, amidst thick rainforest mountains of majestic Western Ghats. This is great scenery is so satisfying to the eyes of any visitor.
It was arduous journey by Car from Temple city of Udupi or Mangalore Airport. Once you reach the falls, you feel it’s worth taking all trouble. It is such a wonderful experience visiting worlds second highest natural water falls. The flow is controlled as Linganamakki Dam built on up stream. However full glory of falling water mass can be better viewed during full Monsoon months of July August

“Probably better during the monsoons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

The Jog Falls is quite majestic even when the water flow is reduced due to controlled discharge from the Linganamakki Reservoir. To witness it in all its glory, it is probably better to visit during peak monsoon season - June - September
