Amazing place. Must visit in the rainy season. Ample parking space and though monkeys were there , they were not creating a menace .. The view is simply breathtaking

Gaganchukki and Barachukki are separated by 14kms by road though they are very close to each other. During late rainy season, they are marvelous. Barachukki View Point and Gaganchukki view point (near hotel Lakshadeep & not one near Dargah) should be preferred.

You can visit this place only after there's a heavy rainfall in this area. Else you wont find any water to enjoy the falls. Carry a spare clothes set to change if needed. You need to be fit to climb down the large many stairs...More
