Jog falls, one of the highest waterfalls in India is located 50 km from
the coast, midway between Udupi and Karwar. The Sharavati river drops
253 metres in four separate falls known as Roarer, Roarer, Rocket, Raja
& Rani. The highest is the Raja with a fall of 253 metres and a pool
below 40 metres deep. The 50km long Hirebhasgar Reservoir and the Linganamkki
dam regulates the flow of the Sharavati river to generate hydro electricity.
The Inspection Bungalow has excellent views. During the monsoon season,
the falls present a spectacular sight. The best time to visit is late
November to early January. Reserve in advance for overnight stay.
