Today is Christmas. I don’t have any work to do, so just I went to Shivana Samudram through my bike (Hero Honda splender). It’s really interesting ride.

I started morning 8.30 AM from Marathalli through Bangalore-Mysore high way. This is very good road. From T.B.Circle(80KM from Bangalore, After Madhur Village) we need to take diversion(Take Left) It lead you in NH-209 road. This is not good road. Still we need to travel 40 more km to reach Shivana Samudram (Totally 120km from Bangalore).


At 11.30 AM I reached GAGANA CHUKKI falls(Next side of Dam) after traveled 146 km from my house. This is very beautiful falls but not much water, because it’s not season now. We can’t go near to this falls.


Still I traveled 2 more KM from this place, I reach BHARA CHUKKU falls. It’s very beautiful falls, one good thing is we can go to near water also. It’s good place to play in water also. I spend more time in this place. While coming back I took lunch in some small hotel.



Afternoon I started from this place and returning back and reached GAGANA CHUKKI fall (view from ShivanaSamudram Bluff, It’s called Shiva Hydro Electric Project Dam). This is same falls only, But it’s another side of view. We can see more tourist in this place, because most of the people will see this place and they will return.


Place TO See:
GAGANA CHUKKI falls (view from ShivanaSamudram Bluff- Dam)
GAGANA CHUKKI falls(Next side of Dam)

from this place, Still if we travel 30 more KM towards north, We will reach THALAI KADU, But I am not went to this place, I heard there is no much water now.

Now I started my return journey from GAGANA CHUKKI falls & reached Bangalore at 6.00 PM. Today I have traveled 315km(up and down) in my bike. it’s really worth to spend one day to see this place.
