I would say that generally best time would be July and August for Jog Falls. June, July and August for Murdeshwar and Gokarna being in proximity to sea shore.
I am planning to Visit Jog falls this July. Travelling from Mangalore via Shimoga. How much it takes from Shimoga to Jog falls by Car? Is bus available? What is the best way to go?
