Twin Waterfalls: Barachukki Falls consist of two distinct segments, Barachukki and Gaganachukki, each offering a unique viewing experience. Barachukki, the eastern segment, is wider and more voluminous, while Gaganachukki, the western segment, is taller and more forceful.
Visitors can witness both falls from different viewpoints, each offering its own perspective of the natural spectacle.
Besides enjoying the mesmerizing views of the falls, visitors to Barachukki Falls can engage in activities like trekking and nature photography. There are trekking trails that lead to viewpoints offering panoramic views of the falls and the surrounding landscape.
