    Shivasamudra divides the river Kaveri into twin waterfalls named Gaganachukki and Bharachukki Falls (13 km from each other). These magnificent waterfalls plunges 320 feet into gorge, breaking into a cloud of misty foam. The waterfalls are surrounded by the lush green hill forests of the Kaveri Wildlife Sanctuary. The spectacular waterfalls will certainly take your breath away. The sound of gushing waters has a soothing effect. Enjoy the calm and tranquil ambiance. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the mesmerizing view of the waterfalls.
