This is a spectacular waterfall which was earlier known as the Cauvery Waterfalls and is in the Mandya District of Mysore. The picturesque scenery is wrapped with greenery in the form of the Cauvery National Park. This is the second largest waterfall in India and the sixteenth largest in the whole world. The river Cauvery here divides into two branches and cascades down the rough and rocky cliffs to form the Gaganachukki and the Bharachukki waterfalls which are both at a kilometers' distance on both east and the west.

Located at a distance of 130 km from Bangalore, this waterfall in Karnataka is situated at a point where River Kaveri meets Rivers Harangi, Hemavathi, Lakshmana Thirtha and Kapila creating a number of waterfalls. During the monsoon, these rivers get flooded and the water directly plunges into the waterfall creating a sight second to none. This mighty waterfall plunges 320 feet into the gorge in an area of 893 meters.
What makes Shivansamudra falls in Mandya district of Karnataka so beautiful is the fact that its a segmented waterfall which means its flow is divided and broken into different streams by rocks and ravines. In monsoon, the Kaveri river which forms these waterfalls flows in its full glory and creates these beautiful waterfalls which only need to be seen to be believed! Why wait? They are just 139 km from Bengaluru anyway!
This is a segmented waterfall. Segmented waterfalls occur where the water flow is broken into two or more channels before dropping over a cliff, resulting in multiple side by side waterfalls.
Located at a distance of 135 kms from the city, the falls near the River Cauvery is a peaceful retreat. The natural beauty is absolutely breathtaking, giving you peace of mind. It offers tourists the chance to enjoy some sightseeing and trekking. A 2-day short break here is all you need to help you face the challenges of a new work week. The view of the gurgling white waters is indeed therapeutic for vacationers from Bangalore.

3. Shivanasamudram Falls, Mandya
Our final destination for Day 4 was Shivanasamudara.. We reached there by 5pm.. This is what it looks like..
Shivasamudram Falls :Situated on the banks of Kaveri River, Shivasamudram falls are located in the Mandya District of Karnataka. The falls are located at a 136 Km from Bangalore, and one side journey can be completed in approx 3 hours. There are two falls in the Shivasamudram region : Gaganachukki and Bharachukki. Depart early morning from Bangalore and try to rech Shivasamudram by 9 Am. On the way, one must try a local delicacy in Mandya District, Tatte Iddli.
This is a beautiful place & famous for it's segmented waterfall . This town splits the river into two streams (It is on the Kaveri River after the river has wound its way through the rocks and ravines of the Deccan Plateau and drops off to form waterfalls.)
It's a great one day trip from Bangalore. The best time to visit is during the monsoons. Give public holidays a miss if you can as it tends to be more crowded then.
With a height of 322 ft it is the second highest water fall in Karnataka (after Jog Falls). Kaveri River after making its journey through the Deccan Plateau makes drop here. Shivasamudram is located at Mandaya District and just 130 KM away from Bangalore.
