Jog Falls - The Enchanting Waterfall in Karnataka

Misty Waterfall

Jog Falls is the second-highest plunge waterfall in India. It is certainly one of the most beautiful and dangerous water falls I have ever visited.  It is 400 km from Bangalore and 240 km from Mangalore. Jog Falls is formed by the Sharavathi River. The best time to visit Jog Falls is from June-September, During the monsoons.

We took the following Route from Bangalore to Jog Falls.

Here's a small video compilation of the falls followed by some interesting snaps.

The route was quite scenic and the road was decent. In spite of it raining it didn't feel unsafe to drive.
Things turned even more beautiful as it was drizzling.

We ended up having lunch at a restaurant in probably a town. There was only one restaurant that seemed decent enough to even enter. But the menu was absolutely out of the world. The "Non" were very normal. But having curd rice on the north Indian Meals Menu was the icing on the cake.

It started pouring on the later part of the journey and it was quite hard to even see the road. The Roads were pretty good so we managed to reach safely.

When we had almost reached jog falls we hit a bridge.
It was afternoon and yet so misty that it looked like the marshes from Lord of the Rings

  Finally we reached the Enchanting Jog falls. There are a couple of places Jog falls can be viewed from. However the best of them all is the Inspection bungalow. We got a guy who said he will take us there and give a pretty good view of the falls. He Actually made us lie at the edge of the cliff and look down . Something anyone could do there without the guide but probably wouldn't dare. It was worth it though. It looked mesmerizing .

Then it suddenly got misty and hardly anything could be seen.
And after sometime the mist cleared off as well. It was quite an experience to see one of the largest waterfalls vanish in its own mist.

Jog Falls is a must visit for everyone.
