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.

I traveled from Bangalore to Jog in the month of September, I preferred Karnataka route Volvo bus. It will take almost 8 hours to reach Jog. I would say that if you prefer non ac bus with comfortable seating that will also work well especially in winter season. More »
