This is the site of the first hydro-electric power station in Asia, set up in the early 20th century. The Gaganachukki and Barachukki waterfalls are best visited post monsoon, when there’s abundant water.

Me and my friends went for a bike trip to this place and it was good and there are lot of places near to visit. We tried the road side live fish grill and it was great taste. Please take the nice road.

I wont recommend this place to visit. Now we are not allowed to go down to the fall. Water will be very less most of the time.

There is only very little water. Entry not allowed before 8.30. They don't allow to walk down to the waterfalls even though there is stairs. Felt very unfair. Don't plan to visit after feb, since there could only be rocks.

Absolutely we wasted time for seeing this beauty as there is only a little amount of water, nowadays they are not allowing us near the stream. We can only view from distance. Overall don't waste your time by visiting the place.
