“Gracefull waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Eventhough the flow of water was less volume wise, still it is a scenic place. River Cauvery flows here and when full the water fall looks excellently graceful !

“Bounty of nature!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Must visit in Monsoon and just experience the wonderful bounty of nature...
There are 2 group of falls in the vicinity. 1) Gaganachukki, 2)Barachukki.
And to feel the adrenaline rush, re-visit little later...around October and step down to the foot of the Barachukki(manage to reach among the middle of the 3 falls at this place)...and just enjoy the experience of falls... Utmost care recommended!

“Fantastic Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

On my way back to Bangalore, the driver recommended us . It was approx 35-45 min drive from the main Road . The place is good now since they have stairs now leading to bottom of falls where you can take a boat ride. There is a camera person who takes picture n prints them for Rs 30.
One has to pay parking of Rs 20 on the way to the falls .

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

One of the best places to experience waterfalls, Shivasamudram is brilliant during the monsoons. A boat ride and then bathing in the water is total fun. You could do it during a trip to Mysore or separately. Loads of fun.
