Jogi Gundi waterfalls, Agumbe

Jogi Gundi is a nice waterfalls to visit when in Agumbe during monsoon season. Jogi Gundi is accessible via an easy trek of about a km from parking area. Forest department charges 100 INR per person to give access to Jog Gundi. You can check this post for photos and other details and plan your visit while visiting Agumbe.

While forest official claimed a 300 meter walk, I believe the walk is much longer. At least 300-500 meters plain walk and then another 300 meters down the steps. So be ready for about a km of trekking, which is not really much and totally worth it.

Jogi Gundi falls is nice. You will get an angular view from entry point. For best view you will have to negotiate few rocks and get to the center.

I could see Jogi Gundi in two parts- one portion on left where water was gushing out from a holl in the rock and the other portion where it was falling down from the rock. Height is not much- may be 7 to 10 meters.
