Gaganachukki and Bharachukki waterfalls at Shivanasamudra in Mandya District are the two falls separated by a couple of Kms. During monsoon waterflow is quite high and that’s how the falls are more attractive now. At Gaganachukki, water falls through the gorge with a high velocity...More

Majestic waterfalls situated in Mandya district, Karnataka. Spectacular view can be caught from the watch towers. They have restricted entry into the foothills of the falls due to safety measures during monsoon. Shivanasamudra divides river Kaveri into twin waterfalls Gaganachukki and Barachukki. A perfect weekend...More
