    As this weekend being a long weekend, people had plans from weeks back, and me being busy with my work couldn't plan up anything. A friend of mine kept calling and I was just so busy couldn't give him a definite answer. Enjoyed my Saturday relaxing, and Just when It was Sunday Morning, and I just had this feeling "WTH, Lets Go Someplace!", and that's when I called my Friend and we decided to Start in an Hour. We wanted to keep it a single day trip, that's when we picked SHIVA SUNDARAM FALLS and decided to visit only 2 places, Bharachukki and Gaganachukki Falls.

    Our Journey started at 11 AM, and reached Gaganachukki Falls at around 03:20 PM with a short Brunch break at MTR. Must of the drive was two-lane freeway but just few kilometers before the falls there are bridge where One-way vehicle can pass at a time.

    After spending ~1 hour, we started for Bharachukki Falls and reached there by 4:40 PM. The drive to Bharachukki also includes bridge with One-way vehicle at a time. I believe entry to the view point closes by 5 PM so we were lucky to reach on time(as per local people). Just ~3 KM before the view point people could access the river, being able to enjoy boating and Bathing.

    NOTE : Due to an accident few months back people are not allowed to climb down( 100 steps - From the view point to the nearest point to fall), I heard it should re-open in a Month (Not Sure).

    The best part was the 10 Mins Rain, that made it just what we wanted most, Beautiful ( including the crowd to vanish ;) :p :D). I think this Pic's can justify my feeling now.

    Thanks Jagadeesh. Mi bad.
    I don't think I can edit it.

    Mods: can you please rename the post title and a text in first post from Shiva Sundaram to Shivasamudra.
