The highest un-tiered falls and also the second highest plunge falls in India, Jog Falls personify majesty and indomitable grandeur. River Sharavathi after following a splendid journey over Western Ghats descends to the plains in the form of four distinct waterfalls that are collectively called Jog Falls (also popular as Jogada Gundi and Gersoppa Falls). The highest among the four is called the Raja Fall which drops from 830 ft. Other three are named Roarer (for the kind of roaring noise it makes), Rocket (for its trajectory) and Rani.
Several vantage points for savouring the charming splendour of the falls can be accessed. The two most popular ones include Watkins Platform and Bombay Bungalow. The whole area remains engulfed in the mist created by voluminous water falling from such great heights. Enthusiastic tourists love to follow the steps to reach the base of the falls from where the views are unbelievable. Though, the falls are at full glory during monsoons, you should be careful while indulging into adventures. Trekking is a popular activity and one can also come across exotic birds and animals like flying squirrel.
The falls are surrounded by lavishly green vegetations that present the unflawed facet of nature. Be careful about your cameras and gadgets that may easily get wet near the fall. Few accommodations are also available in the close proximity.  


Road: Being a tourist attraction of such stature, Jog Falls can be accessed by well-maintained road from different parts of Karnataka. State transport buses can drop you at the Jog Falls bus stop, while private vehicles and taxis can take you to the entrance point. From here, you need to walk to reach the exact location. It is one of the few journeys that you would like never to end.

Railway: Only about 13 km. from the falls’ location is the railway station of Talaguppa. Another good option is Sagara Railway Station about 28 km. away. Taxis are available at each of these stations for further journey to the falls.

Airway: Hubli’s domestic airport is about 160 km. from the location while Mangalore International Airport is about 218 km. away. Taxis are the best options available at these air terminals for the subsequent journey.
