Nature is not a place but an emotion. It lives within us, is a part of us and encompasses our virtues within us. It is unexplainable beauty coupled with beauty and hospitality. Nature is something that cannot be explained properly but is to be experienced. 


Waterfalls are one such thing that needs to be experienced. It can't be seen in pictures or video, but to be a witness in front of your eyes. 


Bangalore is one of those places that is thought to be a kingdom of IT infrastructure and scathing buildings, but beneath the facade, there is more to it than meets the eye. Driving past the beautiful bustling city is nature and it calls forth to witness its beauty. 


Forests, the wonderful trails and most importantly waterfalls that embody the beauty of nature. In this blog, we will take you on a wonderful ride through the best waterfalls that Bangalore has to offer. Without further adieu, let's begin!!

Shivanasamudra Falls: 

These waterfalls are one of Bangalore's majestic and popular tourist destinations located in Karnataka. A unique fact about this is the island of Shivanasamudra divides the Kaveri River into 2 halves to form these magnificent 2 waterfalls, wherein one is named Gaganachukkiu, and the other is named Bharachukki. 


Instead of giving you a long history lesson, it's much easier to iterate the fun stuff to do at this place. If you follow the stream, you could take a coracle ride to the opening of this magnificent waterfall. One of the halves of the waterfall known as barachuki has a section where tourists can enjoy a bath under the waterfall and take in a breath of fresh air.

We know how busy Bangalore life can be. The work aspects, family, friends and parties, you might need some time away from the whole shebang. Here's a gem of a waterfall that's just a few km from Bangalore. 


The Thottikallu Falls is located next to the Kanakapura road. It is one of the popular spots in Bangalore to visit, and the monsoon season is best suited to visit these wonderful locations. 


If you're quite adventurous here's some soothing stuff for your ear. There is a trail to the falls, and it's a bit rugged however, there are other places near the falls which includes a shrine that is revered and is a religious environment for locals. Bike riders can also use this path for a healing ride away from the bustling city. 


Our suggestion is to visit the Thottikallu Falls during the day so that you can explore the whole area and bask in the stunning views of the surrounding. If you want to skip the crowd, don't go on Sundays.
