About Dhuandhar Falls, Jabalpur

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.

  • Awesome place to visit.. Amazing water fall. There is rope way too to see waterfall from above. There is so many shops of white marble. One can buy beautiful show piece of white marbles.

  • It's big. It's overflowing with crystal clear water. It's loud. In short.... It's picture perfect. Plus it has a cable car to enjoy the view from above. A Highly recommended place if you ever visit MP. It's also worth paying multiple visits, because it's beauty may not grow old that soon. Don't forget to visit the Narmada Marble valley whilst you are at it. It's also a 'Never miss it' place which is very close to this fall.

  • One of the best tourist places to visit if you are around Jabalpur. Beautiful waterfall surrounded by White Marble. There is a rope way and boat ride too among other attractions nearby. Also a great picnic spot.

  • The Dhuandhar waterfalls are a beautiful sight and the cable ride over it gives a perfect view of the entire falls. Wish the authorities would do something to pave the other side of the cable car ride. There is no proper way to go towards the river. It's all very dusty and rocky and the protective railing is not maintained.

  • Beautiful waterfall on river Narmada. Water flow is very strong even in mid January. One can feel heavy mist nearby so be careful while photography, cover ur device if it is not water proof. One can also enjoy cable car rope way across it.
