A trip to Gaganachukki Bharachukki…
It was a short one day trip which was planned at a short notice of may be an hour or so by dad. Trip was planned because, the KRS gates were opened to let the excess inflow of water and the water would flow towards Gaganachukki and Bharachukki (Shivanasamudra).
To reach Gaganachukki and Bharachukki, we took the Bangalore-Mysore Highway and reach Maddur. Just after the KSRTC bus terminus, we took the route to Malavalli (falls on the left side of the route when travelling from Bangalore to Mysore). The road from Maddur till Malavalli is not good so it would be covered at 30-40 kmph. But once Malavalli is crossed, roads become smoother and could be covered at much higher pace.
The small village Shivanasamudra splits the Cauvery river into 2 forming Gaganachukki and Bharachukki.
Below are the pictures taken by me during the trip.
The distance from Bangalore is around 140 kms. The Google map location .
