High and Dry...!!



Can anyone guess the place?? I dont think anyone can imagine Jog Falls like this. Jog Falls turned out to be Joke Falls when I visited the place post the monsoon season. There was hardly any water and the four falls namely Raja, Rani, Rocket and Roarer made me leave the place disappointed. The best time to visit Jog Falls is during the monsoons when the water gushes through the boulders with great force.

Signing Note: The biggest travel disappointment...!!

Route- Bengaluru- Tumkur- Shimoga- Sagar- Jog Falls 
Distance- 385 Kms

  13. Hi RN,

    It's okay, all of us face disappointments and letdowns. However, that bolsters the importance of tourist reviews and testimonials which can come in handy before visiting a tourist attraction. I wish you better luck next time around. :)

  14. yea quite a dry falls it is nowadays. even when i visited there last year pre-monsoon months, it was dry with a single flow of water. Not a beautiful view for any waterfalls but it is indeed a good click.. :-)

    1. Monsoons or immediately after it would be the apt time. This was not during summers but in October. So june to august would be the only time to see Jog in full splendour.
