The Gaganchukki and Bharachukki Falls are on the Cauvery River after the river has winded its way through the rocks and ravines and drops off to form waterfalls. The river divides in to twin side-by-side falls around the 700-acre picturesque Shivanasamudra Island. On the one side, it forms the Gaganachukki falls and on the other it rumbles down as the Bharachukki falls. The segmented waterfalls has an average width of 849 meters, a height of 90 meters. With the Cauvery basin receiving heavy rains, the twin falls have roared back to the glory.The two falls lie at a distance of 1 km (0.6 miles) from each other
