My relatives have visited Jog Falls couple of days back. Water has come down now from nayagara looking scene 5 days back. It stoped raining now so less water is released from Damm.

But still falls is in full glory, palce is flooded with people very very rush indeed.

Regards,

Ravi.

Hi guys,
Am back from my trip. The route was
Mumbai-Hubli (NH4 - superb road - part of GQ) - 589kms
Hubli-Sirsi (via Hangal as Mundgod -Sirsi road was closed) single lane.- 124kms
Sirsi-Jog (lovely forest 2laned road) - 60kms (saw Jog falls)
Jog-Honnavar (good road thru the dense forest) - 61kms
Honnavar-Mangalore (NH17-nightmare) - 178kms - this road is the pits - literally and figuratively! Avoid it as far as possible-possibly the reason why Samurai does'nt venture out nowadays!
Mangalore-Vitla - tolerable after the nightmare - 45kms
Vitla-Moodbidri- 2 laned decent road - 46kms (Thousand Pillars Temple)
Moodbidri-Karkala - again a very decent road - 22kms (Gomateshwara)
Karkala-Shivamoga - (via Agumbe) decent roads except for the bumpy hairpin bends on the climb to Agumbe -140kms
Shivamoga-Harihar-Hubli - back to good roads - 211kms
Hubli-Belgaum-Mumbai - excellent NH4 again! - 589kms
Total - 2065kms!
Thank you all for chipping in with your valuable inputs that helped me make this journey memorable!
A superb journey in my Indica DLS V2TC
Will post my travelog and pics shortly
