How to get there

Jog falls is easily accessible and is well connected by road and train. The nearest town Sagar is around 30kms from the fall. One has to take a deviation of about 2kms, from the national highway to reach the falls. 

Air : The nearest airport is Bangalore airport 378 kms away and Mangalore (180km).

Rail : The nearest railway station is Shimoga (104 kms from Jog). From Shimoga one can go to Taluguppa in a train meter gauge or in a bus. From Taluguppa it is 16kms to Jog by road. There are around 4 trains daily to Shimoga from Bangalore.

Road :  The best approach from Bangalore is via  Tumkur road, NH 4 and then turn left at Tumkur, along the NH 206 (the condition of the road may not be good) to Shimoga and Sagara towns which have several buses to the falls each day. Now there are direct KSRTC (Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation) buses including luxury coaches from Bangalore to Jog (8.30- 9 hrs Hrs journey). One can also take a direct bus from Bangalore to Shimoga or Sagara and then take local bus from Sagara to Jog.
