Jog Falls is a spectacular waterfall in the Shivamogga district of Karnataka and is located approx 72 kms from Honnavar. Touted as the second highest waterfall in India and 13th in the world by the waterfall database, the Jog Falls is a sight to behold! This waterfall is formed when the Sharavathi River descends down around 250 mts along four cascades known as Raja, Roarer, Rocket & Rani.
1400 Steps from the viewpoint to the bottom of the hill where tourists can view the waterfall at the opposite side give it a special charm.
