After the monsoon, the falls are majestic. The photographer with an instant printing facility is really emtrepreneurial. People unfortunately litter the area and maintenance is poor

Visited this waterfall in November 2017. Unlike other reviews and photos I saw, there was very little water. Also, going down near water is not allowed anymore. Can be avoided.

Hardly it is 2 weeks since the rain stopped in and around Bangalore and the waterfalls have dried up. A little possibility of entertainment was also closed when the steps leading to the foot of the barachukki falls was closed too.

One of the most beautiful place after Kanakapura. Never thought that this place would be so beautiful. Gigantic falls. Falling with its own style. Again nature makes us remind that no body can beat it in style.

First, when you would like to visit a water fall, you need to identify with the season and plan a trip ( I advise Aug-Sept). That is precisely what we did, this season the rainfall was aplenty and we decided to drive down to the...More

Monsoon is the best time to view waterfalls, but we were little late in visiting Bengaluru last year. We still took a chance to visit Bharachukki and Gaganachukki Falls. The entire drive is very enjoyable especially after the first view of river Kaveri. Though not...More

Water level is generally good in August. This year Monsoons are showing late results.... But water is expected to improve in August. As the feeder catchment areas are receiving rains now.
