Dhuandhar Falls - Review
This waterfall is often referred to as the Niagra Falls of India because of the speed with which the water falls down. It mesmerises you with its beauty and charm. Located about 30 km from the city of Jabalpur, the water fall is formed by the River Narmada, which is considered as one of the five holy rivers in India. A dip in this river is said to wash away all your sins. Lots of tourists visit here and enjoy the beauty of the water fall and some take a bath too in the holy water.
As you get nearer to the waterfall, you will start hearing the thunderous sound of the falling water, which gets louder gradually. The very sight of the waterfall makes you spell bound and you will forget everything else but the mesmerising beauty of the fall. It falls from a height of 98 ft and as it falls down, it produces small water droplets, which look like smoke arising from the river bed. So the water fall got the name Dhuandhar Falls. ‘Dhuan’ means smoke and Dhuandhar means Smoke Cascade.
To enjoy a spectacular view of the waterfall, there are many viewpoints here, where you can stand and watch the fall as well as take as many photographs as you like.
For the lovers of adventure, there is the rope way, which takes you over the water fall, offering you a clear view of it from top. A lot of stalls are found in the vicinity selling marble artefacts, jewellery and beautifully carved soap-stones. If you ever visit Jabalpur, make sure that you visit this place and it is sure to make you rejuvenated and joyful.

Dhuandhar Falls, Jabalpur Reviews
big storing fall धुआँधार जलप्रपात भेड़ाघाट के धुंआधार जलप्रपात का दृष्य धुंआधार जलप्रपात मध्य प्रदेश के जबलपुर जिले का प्रसिद्ध जलप्रपात है। यह प्रपात भेड़ाघाट क्षेत्र का प्रमुख दर्शनीय स्थान है। यहाँ नर्मदा की धारा 50 फुट ऊपर से गिरती है। जिसका जल सफेद धुंए के समान उड़ने लगता है। इसी कारण इसे 'धुंआधार' कहते हैं।The Dhuandhar Falls are located on Narmada River in Bhedaghat and are 30 meters high. The Narmada River, making its way through the world-famous Marble Rocks, narrows down and then plunges in a waterfall known as Dhuandhaar. The plunge, which creates a bouncing mass of mist, is so powerful that its roar is heard from a far distance. The best time to visit Dhuandhar falls is during in Sharad Purnima, when Narmada Mahotsava get celebrated. The white marbles appears spectacular when the moon light falls on it and give it a silver appearance. Once in Dhuandhar don't forget to have a pleasure on boat ride in the valley of white marble which appears yellow during sunsets
Awesome experience. You feel really connected to nature with all your senses. With a heavenly pleasing view, the sound of water falling on rocks and it's soothing smell, you can also experience the tiny droplets of water coming on your face. It really gives a good experience. It is better if you visit in morning or evening. It is best visited in rainy season. Going through the rope way adds to the experience. It gives a really nice view of the fall as well the river between the marble rocks. And of course it saves your time of walking all the down to the spot through stairs or the walkway. Overall it is a really nice and refreshing place. A must visit!
What a nice place to visit. Perfect place for spending vacation time with friends and family. The boating at bhedaghat was also awesome as we come to know about different kind of marbles. Water is clean too. A must visit place in Madhya Pradesh. Really enjoyable place and natural too. Waterfall looks great and even bigger during monsoon. A must visit
A lively waterfall in the marble valley of Narmada. Also called as Dhuadhar fall due to its Misty ambience. One has to take a short walk from the parking place to reach the falls. River Narmada starts flowing in a deep marble gorge from here. The scene is spectacular. View from nearby viewpoint is also good. A cable car ride crossing the Narmada river and cruising above the waterfall is worth a try.
Excellent place. Amazing view. Only disappointment is, you have to bargain with the boat men. But it is worth taking the boat ride. For me it was an experience of lifetime. The boat will come with a local guide. Usually the guides will entertain you with their way telling the details. This is an add on.
