By South India Personal Tours @topindiaholiday

Monsoon is the season when nature rejoices and everything on the earth becomes full of life. This season is also one of the favored seasons to travel as the ordinary landscape changes into lush green surroundings, the lakes start brimming and rivers begin to overflow. It is in monsoons that travelers seek places blessed with nature’s bounty to take full advantage of the pleasant climate.

Located in Shimoga district of Karnataka, the Jog Falls is one such place where natural wealth can be enjoyed to its fullest.   The Jog Falls are second highest plunge waterfall of India and the highest waterfall of the state; these magnificent waterfalls form an important tourist attraction of Karnataka.

During Monsoons four streams that is Raja, Rani, Rocket and Roarer flow in full surge and merge to form a huge waterfall on the Sharavathi River known as Jog Falls or locally known as Geruoppe Falls, Gersoppa Falls and Jogada Gundi. Jog Falls drops about 850 ft. in un-tiered fashion thundering down the slope, unlike other waterfalls. The cascading waters and the lush green surroundings enhance the beauty of the region and makes for a visual treat. One can enjoy hiking up the hill to take a better view of the falls or take a plunge in the water gushing down from upwards. Many adventure camps and treks are organized in Shimoga for the tourists, which let them soak the breathtaking beauty of the region.
