Shivanasamudra Falls

Shivanasamudra a small island town located at a distance of 100 km from Bangalore in Mandya District of Karnataka state. Shivanasamudra is situated on the banks of River Kaveri. The island town of Shivanasamudra divides the river into twin waterfalls. A group of historic temples can be found at this place and there likely was a village.

The river Kaveri tumbles grandly downward the Shivanasamudra Falls, also called the Shivasamudra Falls. The Shivanasamudra Falls has twin jumps, Gaganachukki and Bharachukki, one km away from each other. It is because to Kaveri river by itself splitting just a few kilometers towards the south into western as well as eastern branches. Both Gaganachukki as well as Bharachukki are a heaven for the nature lovers. It really is a panoramic landscape to view the river fall down from a top of 300-350 feet into a spray of mist. Relaxing on the nearby benches from the watch tower you are able to revel about the beauty that the cascading waterfalls offer.


Gaganachukki loacted on the left is a huge horsetail waterfall. The 90-metre waterfall on the river rushing through the huge boulders invite the travelers during July - August during the river Kabini too floods together with river Kaveri.


Bharachukki located on the right is really a jagged roaring cascading waterfall. Bharachukki is situated a km towards the south-west of the Gaganachukki Falls. On the route to Bharachukki, you can find an ancient dargah located along the bank, that attracts numerous Muslims everyday to visit and worship. When compared with Gaganachukki, Bharachukki wears a more tranquil appearance, due to the steady sheet of water falling without many boulders hindering its route downward.
