Known for being the highest waterfalls in India, the Jog Falls are in its full swing during the monsoon. During other times of the year, the Linganamakki Dam, up the Sharavati River, spoils the show by restricting the water flow. Raja, the tallest among the four waterfalls, drops from the height of 293m. To have the best view at the falls, you need to pass through scrappy area lying close to the bus stand and move up to the foot of the falls following a 1200-plus step path. Beware of leeches during the rainy season. Hotel Mayura Gerusoppa, located near the car park, offers a couple of huge and musty doubles. You can also relish omelettes, rice dishes, thalis, noodles, along with hot and cold drinks, served near bus stand. There are buses every hour from Jog Falls to Shimoga. It is three-hour bus ride costing Rs. 53. Three daily buses also commute to Karwar via Kumta from where you can change for Gokarna. If you are heading for Mangalore, change at Shimoga. You can also take a return taxi from Gokarna costing around Rs. 1500.
