Last but not least, a trip to Karnataka would be incomplete without sighting the enchanting Jog falls. Also known as Gerusoppa falls, it is the 2nd highest plunge waterfalls in India as it drops directly and does not stream on to the rocks. Your visit to Jog Falls will become memorable for lifetime by the excellent lodging facilities and hospitable staff at Hotel Mayura Gerusoppa Jog falls.
