Jog Falls in Karnataka is one of India’s most beautiful waterfalls. It’s the third-highest waterfall and the second-highest plunge waterfall in India. Nestled on the Sharavati river in Karnataka’s the Western Ghats, a visit here during the monsoon season is a must. Now, while it’s well known in India, to cement it on a pedestal of global tourist destinations, Jog Falls is all set to get a makeover.

Bronze Statue Of Sharavati To Also Be Erected

A source in KPCL stated to Deccan Herald, “The project involves starting a boating facility from Jungle Lodges to Vadanbailu Padmavathi Temple in Hebbail village. At present, a tourist has to take permission from KPCL to travel to the temple via Kargal, Kargal, a distance of 15 km. The boat journey will have prior approval and will cut the distance and time while providing a unique experience.” This project stems from a brilliant idea from Shivamogga MP B Y Raghavendra. A bronze statue of  Sharavati will also be erected at the site. You can expect this larger than life makeover of Jog Falls to witness completion by the second quarter of 2023.
