We started from Mysore at 2.30 PM and reached Shimoga at 9.30 PM ( same day ). We stayed that night at a hotel near the bus stop and next day we took a local bus to Sagar at 9 AM. Buses runs frequently between Shimoga and Sagar but you are lucky if get a direct one to Jog fall. Shimoga to Sagar it took 2 hours and we board another local bus at Sagar and finally reached Jog fall at 12.15 PM. While returning we got a direct bus from Jog fall to Shimoga and we reached our hotel at 6.30 PM.
