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.

Nature's Scenic Beauty!! Narmada Ropeway facilitates us. The breathtaking view of Waterfalls from the Rope car is Unforgettable. One can think about Life, Peace, Happiness, Sadness, everything here.. The tremendous energy of Flowing as well as Falling water is surely a Visual treat for our eyes.. Mini Niagara.. Lovely! :)
Good place to just sit and take it all in. Life, the universe, and things! Otherwise can be a bit crowded at times. Which makes it great for just observing human behaviour. Not sure the cable car is really worth it for true travellers, good for families perhaps. Don't wear shoes to this place as they will get wet. Best to go on day that isn't sunny, unless of course it is winters! Also the boating is closed from April to Oct which I didn't know and so missed.
A wonderful place to come with friends and family . Water looks like milk when it falls into the depth . Usually crowded throughout the year but the scene here is awesome . Love the beauty of nature. We can see the sunrise here sun looks amazingly good at the time of sunrise
Better see it from the other side i.e. New bhedaghat.. it's more calm n serene!!! Also try boating here.. it's enjoyable.. Specially the boatman's commentary. Also trying visiting this place at full moon light..it's an eye catching view. Boating is closed during monsoons and after sunset. But available after sunset on full moon nights.
The waterfall has a ropeway as well to reach and us recommended especially during summers. The boat ride however opens up in October after the rains due to rapids. So best time to visit this would be in winter season after boating starts.
