Trip to Shivasamudra

As usual we wanted to go somewhere nearby in our new car and decided to go to Shivasamudra. Previous night we made sandwiches for breakfast and chowmein and chicken manchurian for lunch since there are no food available there as per review :-D
Its 10-May-2014, we got up at 4:30 AM. After freshen up, we started at 5:30 AM. By the time we reached Mysore Road, it was around 7. We filled petrol and air and headed toward Shivasamudra. On our way at 8, we parked nearby and had our sandwiches. Next we know we know we are in Shivasamudra area at 10 AM and road was good, though way in Mysore road was always crowded.

Starting of Shivasamudra
 There are 2 falls in Shivasamudra. First one is Gagan Shukki and next one is Bhara Chukki. We went straight to Bhara Chukki falls.

 We stopped here and took some photographs. It was a lovely place.

Once we reached Bhara Chukki falls, we paid for parking. It was around 10 km from Gagan Chukki falls. Once we came out, we were wondering how come there will be 2nd highest fall because we never crossed any hills. But as we went in, we say that we are right on top of hills. Anyway there is proper stairs to go down and you can either take a coracle ride, or take bath or take photographs like us. But yes, you have to climb up and down a lot, so better take drinking water with you. After descending for 20 min, we finally reached till the bottom of the fall. We spend a good amount of time there. It was a lovely moment sitting there at the bottom of the fall, feeling the water droplets and feet in water.
Climbing up is bit tiring, but we managed it well and took rest for sometime. We got a instant photo for both of us and returned back from there.

After we came back from Bhara Chukki, we stopped and took some photo. It looks awesome with flowers all around. Next we stopped near the bridge and had our lunch. We finished our water, so there was a guy with sugar cane juice. So we had 2 glasses from him and it was real good, so asked him to fill our bottle with it. He promptly did and was very happy. So gave us one glass for free and took 90 bucks for everything. Got a bottle of water from nearby shop and headed toward Gagan Chukki falls.

To reach Gagan Chukki falls, it will feel like you are entering government quarters. Guards will note your details and every crossing there will be a guard to show you direction. It is basically you have to go through hydro power electricity board. In this fall you can't go down till the fall and have to see from top. It is more like a commercialized place with a government hotel and few fruit stalls around.

We freshen up from here to return back home. It was 2 PM and started back from here. On way back one temp traveller scratched our car in left front corner. I won't blame him, because I should have understood that it is a public vehicle and doesn't bother about anything.
According to me, I liked Bhara Chukki and you can enjoy there and we are back at home at 5 PM. BTW, that sugar cane juice already fermented and was more of alcohol and less of juice :-D Somehow the map is not understanding from where I came and is showing other place. But yes, we went from Mysore Road and diverted from Mandya.
