The Gaganachukki waterfalls are best viewed from the watch tower at Shivanasamudra. The twin waterfalls have an average height of 98 meters and can be approached from two sides. Reaching the bottom of the waterfall from the watch tower side is not possible as the area is fenced and no one is allowed to go near the water. There are also warnings posted near the fence that caution visitors against crossing the barrier and proceeding to the water from that side of the falls.

Barachukki: The segmented Barachukki Falls are a graceful one and the more popular one among the two falls. This jagged crashing cascade of water is also the wider one among the two falls. The waterfall has a height of about 69 meters. There is a narrow flight of about 200 concrete steps that lead down to the waterfall.

The place is ideal for adventure seekers as they can stand and enjoy a bath under the waterfall in this area.
