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.

Rainy season is the best time to visit these falls. They look so beautiful. On the banks of Cauvery, one can go for boat rides...when boatmen rotate the boat in water it's just awesome.

You must plan to visit Sivasamudram between August thru October when you can see the full water flow. This is the second highest falls in India. We had some wonderful time.

Good place for one-day outing. Almost 4 falls. Good view. Will not be able to get in to the water because of safety reasons. Not so crowded place. No good restaurants nearby. Boating is also available.

The waterfall is a big one. water coming from so many direction looks so good. Suggest to visit just after the monsoon season, so as to see the waterfalls in full flow which will be amazing.

Hi, I had been there in the 1st week of July, but there was no water. I was told by the locals that mid July to mid September would be the best time to visit as it would be guzzling with water.
