Jog Falls is created by the Sharavathi River falling from a height of 253 m (830 ft), making it the second-highest plunge waterfall in india after the Nohkalikai Falls with a height of 335 m (1100 ft) in Meghalaya.
It is situated in the Shimoga district of Karnataka. Jog Falls is also known as Gerusoppe falls. 

The history of the falls goes back to the year 1800, when the site was first discovered by Buchanan during one his journeys.

There are four different streams or tracks into which the River Sharavati is split, comprising the entire structure of Jog Falls, and these streams are: Raja, Rani, Rocket and Roarer. 

The Raja Falls peacefully streams down; the Rani Falls follows a winding path, the Rover Falls bursts out of a rocky stretch, while the Rocket Falls gushes out in high speed remaining true to its name. The natural beauty and the forestry around add to the beauty of the falls and create a picture of natural abundance. 

The above pictures were taken on 7th July, 2012.


  1. Jog Falls is the Beauty of Karnataka, Located in Southern India. With its four falls The King, The Queen, The Roarer, The Rocket, I believe that this is the most beautiful place of india that I have ever seen before my niagara falls tours from nyc. Jog falls have also some trekking options towards down and top. Trekking in jog falls is very dangerous and need to be very careful. Over all this is spectacular area for travelling.
