The segmented Barachukki Falls are a graceful one and the more popular one among the two falls. This jagged crashing cascade of water is also the wider one among the two falls.
The waterfall has a height of about 69 metres. There is a narrow flight of about 200 concrete steps that lead down to the waterfall. The way down to the waterfall is relatively safe as it fenced with railings and there are benches to sit on and relax for a while when you get tired.
The waterfall is a vibrant sight to watch during the monsoon season when the volume of water gushing down the rocks increases substantially. The waterfall can be enjoyed from close quarters as there are shallow areas near the place where the water plunges.
Visitors can get into the shallow water. However, due caution must be exercised as there are no life guards available near the waterfall and accidents can prove to be fatal.
An interesting way to watch the beauty of the waterfall is to take a coracle ride to the mouth of the magnificent waterfall. The mist formed from the water plunging at great speed from the cliff above is a great sight.
Barachukki also has a section of waterfall where the water flows less in volume. The place is ideal for adventure seekers as they can stand and enjoy a batbh under the waterfall in this area. Reaching this section of the falls is an adventure in itself as the section can be reached only after crossing a narrow stream.
The waist deep stream has very strong water current and the river bed is full of extremely slippery rock bed. As such, it must be crossed carefully.
