THE JOG FALLS

                                  The Jog Falls, located in Shimoga --   Karnataka, India is one of the biggest waterfalls of Asia and the highest untiered one in our country. It is formed by the Shravati River and falls from a height of   253 m.   It is also called by alternative names of Gerusoppe falls, Gersoppa Falls and Jogada Gundi.

Going from left to right respectively in the picture, the names and the reasons for naming are:

                                  Rocket: Consists of a large volume of water streaming out of a small opening at a very high speed.
                                  Rani (Queen): Also called Lady Dame Blanche: The stream has a winding, twisting trajectory, said to resemble the movements of a female dancer.

The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the main falls by Luna Island. While not exceptionally high, the Niagara Falls are very wide.   More than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m³) of water falls over the crest line every minute in high flow, and almost 4 million cubic feet (110,000 m³) on average.
