How much time does it take to deviate from NH4, see the Gokak waterfalls and get back to NH4?
Thanks buddy...yes the view is real insane...never imagined there would ever be a point like that.

For Gokak, after the diversion from Sankeshwar its 60kms...would take around an hour and 15 mins max.

Excellent trip! I am sure you must have enjoyed like anything. The Jog falls pics are really cool and now I am eager like never before to visit that place, have heard a lot but never visited before.
The Panhala pics are pretty familiar for me as I am basically from Kolhapur, it was our best place for any outing ranging from a few hours to few days during my college days

So many water bodies! All full and roaring. You really had a fantastic trip.
5 Stars from my side.
Nikhil, I also echo what ampere has said above. Fantastic trip.

I was closely following this thread (without opening/browsing it !!). I mean, I was keeping an eye that this thread sure would be having a perfect 'monsoon masala'. Now, what I liked most was your way of doing this trip: you had such a wide exposure to so many waterfalls and greenery, sort of a circular trip in 5 days.

This is doable for people like us from north in 7-8 days. Who knows may be next monsoon may find us there.

The Hotel Mattuga near Jog Falls is a good find, looks like you have favorable reviews about it.
How good or bad was the road from Sankeshwar to Gokak?
Sorry Nikhil for going OT, couldn't resist 'analyzing' this response from HVK sir.

I was surprised to find the first line in above post! - a routine stuff, much like less mortals like us write.

Go to the second line, and one finds that the post is already in typical HVK gear - picking/highlighting the new information, 'Hotel- good find'.

And the third line! well, there you are caught with the 'mandatory question' - road condition from a particular point to another specific point!!

PS: BTW Nikhil, Amidst your fantastic monsoon pics, I could identify with one: That Dharwad bench of K'taka High Court. While returning during our last summer south trip, we have stopped exactly infront of that building, I crossed NH4 and withdrew some cash from that SBI ATM, and construction of the new small boundary wall seen infront of ATM was going on that day!

Thanks Figo...Kolhapur gives you great access to the western ghats and amazing food. I stayed a couple of days in Shalini Palace ( check my other logs) and it was a great experience.

Ohh yes, I have explored quite a few places around Kolhapur during my college days. And what can I say about Kolhapuri food? It's just that it's name has been tarnished by hoteliers around the country by naming the most spicy dish they can make as a Kolhapuri speciality which is not true as you may have been experienced!

Driving to Kolhapur today for a long weekend, hopefully, I will touch Panhala as well.

You bet Figo...the tambda and pandhara rassa, sukka mutton and in fact the whole cuisine that one gets in and around Kolhapur is way better and different than any of the kolhapuri pretenders in other parts of MH.
