Jog Falls :The most thrilling spectacle in the entire western region of Karnataka are the world famous Jog Falls.   It is Situated on the borders of Shimoga and North Kanara ,30 Kms from this city. The wondrous sight is that of river Sharavathi taking a spectacular leap into the chasm from a height of 900 feet to from the highest waterfalls in India. The river Sharavathi hurtles in 4 distinct cascades. The first of these falls is known as the 'Raja' - the grandest, an unbroken sheet of water, the Raja plunges into the vapor shrouded poll 900 feet below. A few 100 feet way down, with a thunderous gush, Raja is joined by 'Roarer'. Leaping down with great speed in a series of cascades in the 'Rocket'. And gliding away in a feminine grace ,'Rani'. The effect is greatly heightened by the wild and beautiful region around which is covered with a wealth of luxuriant vegetation. The steps cut into rocks will lead you to the very depths of the fall and shower you with vaporous spray that bounces off these rocks.

Around Jog :  There is also the splendid view of the Linganamakki dam, which is 1819 feet above sea level built across the river Sharavathi. This dam is the main feeder reservoir of the Mahatma Gandhi Hydroelectric project.Transport : The place is well connected by rail and road from Shimoga city and number of government & private buses ply between Shimoga and Jog Falls.
