Barachukki Gaganachukki Waterfalls

  • Twin waterfalls of Karnataka!!

Barachukki Gaganachukki Waterfalls

Barachukki Falls and Gaganachukki falls are twin waterfalls that are located near the town of Shivanasamudra in the Mandya district of Karnataka. The falls are created by Kaveri river and the two branches are separated by a few km to form the Gaganachukki and Barachukki falls. The Barachukki has a height of about 69 m and the Gaganachukki is about 90 m high. The Gaganachukki falls can only be viewed from a distance, but you can get up close and personal with the Barachukki Falls. There are a flight of concert steps that lead towards the bottom of the falls, from which the waters striking the bottom are a sight that requires one to take a seat and gawk in awe at this amazing spectacle of nature. There are many benches provided which make for a great view. The bottom is mostly shallow water and many tourists find the place perfect to take a plunge into. The top of the falls provide a panoramic view of the surroundings that mostly consists of lush fauna as far as the eyes can see. Visiting the place during monsoon makes for an even greater experience, since the water levels rise considerably and the falls look much fuller and wholesome. The moist air both from the falls and the monsoon soothes the mind and elevates the senses. Visitors need to be careful as there are many dangerous spots here and are well highlighted by many warnings posted by the authorities throughout. Taking in the sights and sounds of the falls and it surroundings can be made more lively by engaging in bird watching, simply strolling near the falls and also by camping in nearby locations.
