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

  • Don't fall for any guides. There is absolutely no need. There are few view points. I found the waterfall stunning. It's safe to go into the water (considering you won't go too deep).

  • Dhuandhar waterfalls - because here we get smoke flow like feeling, where smoke is made of water vapours. Narmada river makes its way through world famous Marble rocks and plunges in a waterfalls. You will love to watch this amazing waterfall, where you enjoy listening voice of water touching rocks. Smell of water flowing is very soothing. Also, there is rope way from where you can enjoy a view which you never regret. You want more ? Oh yes, you can enjoy food and shopping as there is a small market.

  • I had heard a lot about the so-called Niagara Falls of India and though I visited it in the wrong season ( The 'Dhua' or vapours of water are nowhere near there peak in monsoon) I wasn't disappointed at all. The gushing water is a marvelous sight in itself and the very economical trolley ride (95 Rs. for two-way ticket) just increases the excitement many fold. Highly recommended!

  • Beautiful place with beautiful scene.... Went with my family and enjoyed a lot there. Specially the evening, if you visit that place it is recommended that spend the evening there. Watching sunset while putting your feet under..... Very soothing

  • It's a good place to visit. Unfortunately, when I visited Narmada was over-flooded and there were no falls. Whole area was flooded with waters everywhere...but even at this time of monsoon, u can enjoy the sight seeing, local foods and markets...u can take Shiva's idols made from white marble stone...it was a wonderful place to relax..
