A road trip to Shivasamudram Water Falls & Talakadu

The Sivasamudram Falls is one of the places in Karnataka that everybody visits once in their life time in Bangalore. Same happened with me. I was very eager to visit this much heard about waterfall and so we finally made a plan.

The Sivasamudram Falls is on the Kaveri River. A common misunderstanding about these waterfalls are that the left segment is called Gaganachukki and the right segment is called Bharachukki. In reality the Bharachukki falls are a few kilometers to the south-west of the Gaganachukki falls. This is due to the Kaveri river itself splitting a few kilometers to the south into western and eastern branches. The western branch results in the twin waterfalls of Gaganachukki, whereas the eastern branch results in the Bharachukki falls. more “A road trip to Shivasamudram Water Falls & Talakadu”
