Did you visit Dudhsagar last year? Now let’s visit something even more mightier. Jogfalls is the most spectacular waterfall of Western ghats. With a plunge of 830 feets, it is second highest waterfall of India; highest waterfall being the Nohkalikai falls in Meghalaya.

Want to add some spice in the itinerary? We will travel through ghats to reach this place and stay in a homestay surrounded by greenery and a garden of supari and cashew plantations at backside.
