about shivasamudra falls

Your heart is sure to skip a beat or two, when you see the vastness of River Cauvery divided into two by the island town of Shivanasamudra. Climb up the clock tower to witness this miraculous occurrence as the roaring river dissects into Gaganachukki Falls and Bharachukki Falls. Rainbows, literally, ride the air here! The second biggest waterfall in India, Shivasamudram Falls are the sixteenth largest in the world. Shivanasamudra Falls were formerly known as the Kaveri Falls. 

The River Cauveri divides into two branches and each branch cascades down rocky cliffs, which are known as the Gaganachukki and the Bharachukki, both around a kilometre away from each other. These alluring waterfalls are surrounded by hill forests of the Kaveri Wildlife Sanctuary. Gaganachukki, the western falls, are 98 meters tall and can be viewed from the Hydel Power viewing end or the Dargah end. This waterfall is best visited when the Kabini River floods along with Cauveri River in the months of July and August. Bharachukki, the eastern falls, is about a kilometer away from the Dargah and has a wider falling edge with a section that looks like a 'U', similar to Niagara Falls.
