Shivanasamudra Falls is a segmented falls. The western branches of Kaveri river results in Gaganachukki Falls whereas eastern branches in Barachukki Falls. These two waterfalls together are amongst 100 best waterfalls in the world. Barachukki Falls are the more graceful and popular amongst two. The waterfall is a delightful sight to watch during the monsoon season. And it can be enjoyed from close quarters as there are shallow areas near the place where the water plunges.
An interesting way to watch the beauty of the waterfall is to take a coracle ride to the mouth of the magnificent waterfall. The mist formed from the water plunging from the cliff above is a great sight.
