I travelled from Bangalore to Shimoga by KSRTC non A/C seater bus (Karnataka Sarige). The service was good, reached Shimoga by the mentioned time. For people who are aged or have small kids it is better to go for volvo buses like Airavata, SRS, SRE or VRL. The journey was for 6 hours, wherein we were given stops at Tumkur and Birur. In volvo buses they provided water, blankets, movies and charging points but not in normal buses. Its better to reserve the tickets and plan your trip. Travelling in the night will be better because you will reach Shimoga by early morning, then there are lot of private buses which will take you to jog falls in hardly 2 hours. Better to carry some food items because the food near jog falls is little bit different from that of Bangalore.

It was really a very beautiful experience. Driving along the curves in that place was like Oh My God experience. I seriously loved it. It is a must watch place in life time. People do not miss it. Especially if you guys have to visit in rainy season in which the water fall will be high and nature is just like heaven in front of you.

Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) is the best travel service and is the best bus. If you travel at night from Bangalore than its best and a good option and sleeper will be the best. The journey was very comfortable. But they don’t provide the on-board entertainment like movies and water or pillows.

Left Bangalore by 6.45 am and drove (i10) through Tumkur, Ariskere, Badravathi, Shimoga and reached JOG by 4pm. We used Gps in tab since no proper sign boards are there in Karnataka. From Jog we visited Gokarna, Murudeshwar, Idugunji and stayed next that at Murudeshwar. From there went to Anegude, kotilingeswar and to Sringeri for night halt. Next day reached Bangalore via Chikmagalur and Hassan. The road from Sringeri to Chikmgalur is terrible with lot of pot holes.

We hired Toyota Innova from Bangalore to Jog falls. Our travel experience was great. Since we had kids on board we had to stop couple of times but it did help us to relax. The driver was very helpful and polite. Over all, the experience was good.We hired Toyota Innova from Bangalore to Jog falls. Our travel experience was great.
