    Visit to Jog Falls
    The best time to visit is in Aug. The area receives a good amount of rainfall during this time which enhances the beauty of the Jog falls. The surrounding landscape and vegetation are lush and vibrant during the monsoon season, making it a great time for photography and enjoying the natural beauty.

    Jog Falls and Nature
    Well, it was not what I expected based on the review. The water was less, and the whole place was on a massive construction. Dusty and muddy. The restaurant was dusty as well, but due to no other options, we had our meals there. In my opinion best to go end of next year.

    Beware of scamsetrs ... Enjoy the nature
    As usual Jog falls was great. But be mindful, there are 2 entrances. One, the main one from where you can see all the 4 falls. But that is user renovation now. And there are scammers there to dupe you off 1000 bucks to show you waterfall from top view. Little ahead there is another entrance, from where you can see 2 falls. We went through that and had a spectacular view without a dime. This one govt owned too.

Beautiful as all the pictures that I've seen since childhood. Lot of construction activity going on near the falls as they are doing some developmental work.

It is natures wonder. Jogfall was amazing, not sure if they still allow, but at the time when I visited, it was permitted to swim. Swimming there was one of my best moment.

I am very much dusappointed at the sheer lack of maintenance of the spot. In late october, there was much less water than the rainy season.

There is absolutely no information for visitors. There are 2 viewing galleries, one which is much closer and gives a better view and the gallery is across the falls. There are no visitor amenities despite this being a big tourist attraction
