Barachukki falls is the more awe inspiring (and my personal favorite) of the 2 falls at Shivanasamudra (Literally means Lord Shiva's Sea). Bharachukki is about 2 Km away from Gaganachukki Falls, River Cauvery splits into Western and Eastern branch. The western branch results in Gaganachukki, whereas the eastern branch results in the Bharachukki falls.
Barachukki is a jagged crashing cascade, its a segmented waterfall where the water flow is broken into many channels before dropping over a cliff, resulting in multiple side by side waterfalls. These falls are beautiful and during the monsoon the falls swell to about 1, 000 feet wide and its a sight to behold.
A particular section of a Barachukki falls (Picture below) resembles a horse shoe or a inverted "U" shape and looks like a mini Niagra Falls when the water flow is at its peak
Best time to vist these falls is monsoon, even though it was Peak season when i visit this place the water was less due to lack of rain.
