This is one of the most breath taking view with water gushing at top speed, infact monsoons is the right time to visit to see the fall in full spate. A must watch

Have visited Jog several times during rainy season (Aug-Sep), this was first visit after rains and it wasn't Impressive. Better to visit during rainy season. Also it's hot during day time.
