"Place/village that divides the Kaveri river into 2 twin waterfalls"

  • Posted Oct 21, 2017
The place offers almost everything needed for a traveller. You can select Bangalore as a base city and on the way to Mysore Mandya is the place where Shivasamudram is situated. You can hire a car or take a bike ride to the place. If you plan to visit the place around the lunch time, I would advice you either have your food or carry some snacks. That is if you are too selective of your food. Avoid the duration of dussehra to visit the place as there will be huge traffic due to people travelling between Bangalore or around Mysore for dasara festival.

"Awesome falls during monsoons"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Sep 25, 2017
At a distance of about 150kms from Bengaluru you find a majestic water falls called the Gaganachukki and Barachukki falls.
Gaganachukki the water descends from higher elevation and you find majestic view points here. You can witness the grandeur and ferociousness of Cauvery in Gaganchukki.
There is only 1 hotel Lakshadeep Gaganchukki here. You can eat Bhel, fruits, sip coconut water from vendors nearby.
Barachukki is 14 kms away from here.

"Unspoilt beauty of Nature"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 16, 2016
Splendid falls Gaganachukki and Barachukki. The place is very beautiful surrounded by lush green vegetation and lovely hills on the backdrop. The falls make the area a quite scenic place.
Been there in July last week, nice cool weather and lots of gushing waters from the falls. Really a splendid view to sit and relax.
The road from Bangalore is quite good and is a good 3hr drive.
It's advised to carry food items with you as there are very limited options. A small govt. Run hotel, Hotel Mayura is present infront of Gaganachukki falls which is the only place to eat and stay if required. But the food options are quite limited.

"A good Waterfall"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jun 7, 2016
It takes around 3hrs, from Bangalore, in bike to reach this place. The road condition is bad. To reach the destination you can use Google map or may take help from local people. The gate opens at 8:30 am. Very large parking facility is available.

As compared to Hygienically fall you can really enjoy this fall in whatever manner.

To reach to this fall after parking, you need to move down around 100 stairs.

There are some stalls available for food. You can also find some dhabas on the way.

Overall, you will definitely enjoy this place.

Avoid visiting during summer days.

"Pride of Karnataka"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted May 2, 2016
Just a 135 km drive from Bangalore. If you are planning for a one day trip then it is a very beautiful place to choose. There are two falls which it is divided into GAGANACHUKKI and BHARACHUKKI. To reach bharachukki falls there are around 350 steps and there you can have a lot of fun. There is a boat ride also which I suggest not to miss.
