There are so many beautiful natural wonders that we are yet to explore in our own country.
Take a look at this viral video posted by Twitter user Erik Solheim, for example.
At first glance, it looks like this video is of the famous Niagara Falls or the Victoria Falls but, it is in fact, a video of Jog Falls in Karnataka.
No. It’s not Niagara or Victoria falls.— Erik Solheim (@ErikSolheim) August 1, 2020
It’s Jog falls in Karnataka, India 🇮🇳.
Hard to believe but, it's true. Ever since this video went viral, other Twitter users have also had a hard time believing that this waterfall exists in India.
But, before we go any further and talk about the video, lets learn a little more about this off beat destination in our country that is worth exploring.
This magnificent waterfall lies at a height of 829 feet in four magnificent cascades namely Raja, Rani, Roarer and Rocket. The best time to visit the Jog Falls is in winter season.
You'll easily be able to find a number of government & private buses plying between Shimoga and Jog Falls.
In case you ever plan on visiting this gorgeous tourist spot, here are some details:
Nearest Railway Station: Thalaguppa, Shimoga district.
Now, coming back to the viral video. Well, this video has become the talk of the town. It's literally heaven on Earth and the internet agrees too.
