Shivanasamudram Falls

The Shivanasamudram Falls is in Karnataka. Being very near to Bangalore , it enjoys one of the most visited weekend tourist destinations status.

The Cauvery river after meeting Kavini jumps to the plain from Deccan Plateau near the  tiny island town of Shivasamudram in Mandya district. This is a segmented waterfall,i.e the river jumps from multiple locations creating two main falls GaganChukki and Barachukki. This is the 2nd largest falls of India.

The falls almost dry out in the summer season.  Small storage of water among the rocks can be found on the way

Gaganchukki is the bigger one between them. In the dry season also, the vastness and silence of the place can have a visitor mesmerized.
