The second-highest plunge waterfall of India, Jog Falls is a major tourist attraction in Karnataka. Located on the border of Shimoga and Uttara Kannada districts of Karnataka, Jog waterfalls is the highest waterfall in the state.
Joga in Kannada means falls. Joga may also be a derivative of another Kannada word Javugu which means marsh.
Also known as Gerosappa Falls or the Joga Falls, these falls are one of the most important attractions in all of South India. Second, only to the Nohkalikai Falls of Meghalaya, Jog falls drops about a huge 253 m (850 ft. ) in a single fall. However, due to the construction of Linganamakki Dam, the flow in the falls is hugely restricted before monsoons.
Before monsoon season, the water in Linganmakki Dam is used for electricity generation and hence the fall is a very thin stream of water. It is best to go in Monsoon season to see the falls in its best form.
