I'm also a fan of using the levels tool. (Colors > Levels)

Push the black (left) anchor right until you start clipping darker areas to black more than you want, then push the white (right) anchor left until you start clipping lighter areas to white more than you want. Finally, use the middle anchor to set the overall look the way you want. If you start getting unwanted color banding, just widen out your black and white anchors a bit.

The same principle exists in curves for the bottom left (black) and upper right (white)--the curves allow greater flexibility than just having a middle anchor but can take a little more finessing. The layers tool is a quicker method with the consequence of being a bit more restrictive.

I found easier method "highlight and shadow". It is not built in gimp and I use mac. So I can't install this plug in. Instead I can use RawTherapee software for this.
