Excellent pics telling a story of their own. Amazingly how pics changes a scene from seeing it with a naked eye?? A very rivetting narration-thanks buddy.

Awesome travelogue.. Thoroughly enjoyed it. You have visited some of the best waterfalls in the Western ghats section. I was at Jog about a month back and I too experienced the view from the edge of the cliff which is insane. Loved the pictures at Gokak falls.

How much time does it take to deviate from NH4, see the Gokak waterfalls and get back to NH4?

Seems like you made the trip 2 - 3 days earlier. Because, the rains have washed all the silt down the falls. Another couple of days later, it would have been milky white!

Nevertheless, great stuff. And thanks for the Matthuga place. What's the tariff like?
Thanks buddy....yup it was dangerous but I guess it was the highlight of the trip. I have a video of that view but am yet to figure out how to post it here.

Matthuga is a nice place for a stay near jog. Pls check out their website at www.matthuga.in

HI Nikhil

Absolutely brilliant write up with pics. I must admit India during monsoons is a traveller's paradise. The pictures complements your write up well and very good travelogue. Nice route to consider for future.

Fantastic snaps of a great trip!
As AP said, you seem to have been at the perfect places at the perfect time.
Couple of weeks back, I was at Mahabaleshwar just to see the Lingamala falls and it was an amazing sight. Even Bhilar waterfall was at its best. There was nothing else to see in Mahabaleshwar because of the dense fog, but the sight of 2 waterfalls was more than worth the 2 day trip.

PS : I also wanted to cover the Dhobi waterfall and the Chinaman waterfall at Mahabaleshwar, but was discouraged by locals mentioning that the route goes through dense forest and is a lengthy walk. One guy even mentioned that Chinaman waterfall can be done only on horseback. Not sure how much of this is true. Since I was with family did not wanted to find it out the hard way. People who have covered these falls in monsson can possibly share their experience.

Thanks Jude....the view with the naked eye cant be captured by any camera...the thrill cannot be expressed on paper.
