    Hi Prakash,

    I just returned from Shivamogga today morning. I had been to Jog falls on 10th November 2012.

    As Addy mentioned, there is no enough water pouring down due to failed monsoon compared to what I had seen a couple of years back. Yet, I found it to be decent enough.

    You can go to the Inspection bungalow at Jog Falls to get a better & awesome view of the minimal water flow than the frontal view that everyone witnesses.
    You can check about it with the local police/security over there. They will guide you with the route etc.

    Hope it helps.

    There are quite some awesome places around Sagara taluk as well which is just ~70kms from Shivamogga. To name a few...

    The following places are to the south of Sagara, on the way to Sigandooru.

    Ikkeri temple [3kms from Sagara town]
    Varadapura aka Shridhara Gudda/Ashrama [few kms from Ikkeri]
    Varada-nadi Moola, Varadaambe temple [~5kms from Sagara]
    Sigandooru Chowdeshwari temple [~48kms from Sagara]

    The following places are to the north of Sagara. The itinerary can possibly be as follows:
    Sagara - Banavaasi - ChandraGutthi - Guduvi Bird Sanctuary - Soraba - BaLLigaavi - KeLadi - Sagara [~170kms]

    ChandraGutthi - Cave temple and a fort.
    Banavaasi - 2nd century HoysaLa temple.
    Guduvi Bird Sanctuary - Amazing nature!
    Soraba - Ranganatha swamy temple.
    BaLLigaavi - 11th century Kedareshwara temple.
    KeLadi - Raameshwara temple and museum.
