Dhuandhar Falls

Dhuandhar Falls is located on Narmada River. It is one of the major attractions of Bhedaghat in Jabalpur. It derives its name from the smoke-like phenomena that erupts as Narmada River cascades down with a strong flow and is often compared with Canada's Niagara Falls. It is a 30-metre high waterfall and is known for its ferocious sound. At Bhedaghat, cable car service is available for Rs. 95 to access the other bank of Dhuandhar. A boat ride is also available through the shimmering marble rocks that stand tall in Narmada River. A temple called Chausath Yogini Temple is present near Dhuandhar Falls from where you can get a panoramic view of the magnificent Narmada River. The celebrations of Narmada Mahotsav on Sharad Purnima give a spectacular glow to Dhuandhar Falls, as the believers gather on the banks of Narmada River. The roads are well-connected with the Falls. It offers a beautiful tourist destination for sightseeing and photography in the lap of nature.

The Dhuandhar Falls are a sight to behold as you travel through the famous Marble Rocks and end up at a 30 meters high waterfall. The name 'dhuandhar' comes from the smoky effect water creates on falling from that height. The Dhuandhar Falls are best visited during Sharad Purnima, when the white marble shine spectacularly in the moonlight, giving it a silver appearance.

This is the first of the top 3 places in Jabalpur worth investing your time in. “Dhuandhaar” in Hindi, means “Lightening Fast”. But in this specific context, it means a kind of haze that is formed by the force of the water plunging from huge height. The water is that of River Narmada narrowing down and then falling from the rocky surface from a height of around 100 feet ! Another highlight of this point is the fact that even though there is scarce rainfall in any year, the flow of the water is not affected, don’t know how but then this is something amazing I felt
