This is the site of the first hydro-electric power station in Asia, set up in the early 20th century. The Gaganachukki and Barachukki waterfalls are best visited post monsoon, when there’s abundant water.

Absolutely we wasted time for seeing this beauty as there is only a little amount of water, nowadays they are not allowing us near the stream. We can only view from distance. Overall don't waste your time by visiting the place.
