JOG FALLSBack to the Destination

               Jog is located in Shimoga District of Karnataka are magnificent falls, set in the wild and unspoiled surroundings. The Sharavathi River cascades down 292 m in four distinct falls – Raja, Rani, Rover and Rocket – at Gerusoppa and is a roaring treat to one’s eyes. Just after the monsoon season or rainy season the falls are a magnificent and awesome sight to see. At this time the falls are surrounded by mists. The 50 km long Hirebhasgar reservoir now controls the flow of the Sharavati River in order to generate hydro-electricity but in spite of this there is a vast difference between the wet and dry season flow of the waterfalls. Here the nature has been less disturbed for the tourist tapings.
