This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
Unfortunately, the falls were seen as a source of cheap electricity production some time ago and the Linganamakki Dam several miles upstream draws off the vast majority of the river during all but the monsoon season - though the falls do seem to retain at least a little flow for most of the year. Come the seasonal rains, however, the falls return to their once consistent glory and produce such a violent show that even on relatively clear days the entire waterfall can be virtually hidden from view by the mass of spray exploding up from the gorge.
This waterfall has been incorporated into a hydroelectric scheme and as a result may not flow consistently year round.
HISTORY AND NAMES
- Also Known as: Gersoppa Falls, Gerusoppe Falls, Jogada Gundi, ಜೋಗ ಜಲಪಾತ
- Jog Falls is the Official name of this waterfall
With India fast becoming a center of technology in Asia, the power consumption rate in the country will only increase and the need for waterfalls such as Jog to be harnessed for clean energy will not subside. We can only hope that one day the people of India recognize that Jog Falls is truly a globally important feature and can push for and embrace its eventual restoration, even if partial.
