possibly, the bus fare each way is Rs 25/-. the distance is being given between 13-18 kms.

Talguppa express reached its destination well in time (07:15) and outside the platform, a long queue of cars, auto shouting Jog, waterfall. Inquired about the fare and without doubt they were charging different-different (huge) amount. Bus stand is close by but no bus was there so took a shared van, fare was 50 bucks for 13 kms journey.

Then I was there in open road waiting for return ride, saw a roadside canteen and ordered fried rice. Got bus, fare 25 bucks. Boarded the train at Talguppa.

Get down at Sagar Jambagaru Railway Station, not Talguppa. From the railway station it is a two minute walk to the bus station, and buses to Jog Falls start from there. While these buses do pass Talguppa, they will probably be full by then.

The Sagar - Jog Falls ride is approximately 90 minutes long.

The fare from Sagar - Jog Falls is Rs. 25 per person.

There are buses approximately every hour from Jog Falls back to Sagar/Talguppa. I do not remember the timings of the last bus. But yes, there are quite a few hotels in Sagar. KSTDC also has a guesthouse at Jog Falls itself.

Another option is (assuming you're coming from Mysore and are heading back) to take the overnight slip coach back home. This is attached to the Bangalore Express. It leaves Talguppa at 8 pm and reaches Mysore at 7 am.
