Dhuandhar Falls

Dhuandhar Falls

Dhuadhar Falls is basically a waterfall which is located on Narmada River at Bhedaghat in Jabalpur. It is approximately 30-meters high. The word Dhuadhar is derived from two Hindi words Dhuan (Smog) and Dhar (Flow). It means a waterfall where we get ‘Smog Flow’ like feel. Trust me, it looks so true.

At the Entrance, there are alot of shops run by the locals for tourists. You can buy some artifacts or marble idols from here. Cable Car Service is also available at Bhedaghat. You can see the other side of the Dhuadhar Falls from this service.

I spend my time here sitting near the rocks, putting my legs in the cold water of Narmada River. You can see a lot of people taking a selfie here too.

Marble Rocks

Marble Rocks are the gorge along the Narmada River at Bhedaghat in Jabalpur. In order to view them closely, you need to take a boat ride. There are two types of boat rides that are available here, one is a private boat ride and another one is a shared boat ride. Obviously, the private boat ride will cost you more.

For every boat, generally, there are two types of people that will ride along with you. One of the people will row the boat and the other one is a commentator. The commentator will help you to find and imagine the different figures on the rocks. At some places you will see, a marble car, marble monkeys, a marble yogi and so on.

The boat ride services are available throughout the year except during the monsoon period. Some people also worship the river in the evening.

In this area, you can find marble rocks in different colors like white, blue, brown and much more. Different colors of marble with boat ride takes the whole travel experience to the next level.

Balancing Rock

Balancing Rock is a geological formation which happens naturally featuring a large rock resting on another rock. In India, there are a few of such type of rocks that are famous among the tourist to visit. And guess what, one is near Madan Mahal in Jabalpur.

Particularly here, a soybean shaped large rock is resting on the other large rock with a really tiny base. This thing does amaze a lot of tourists. When I saw it, I was like, how this can be possible ?? Then the horses of logic and science within my brain get started to run.

If I share it here, I will go off the topic, so that’s why I am not explaining it to you here. But, I can help you to find out yourself though. The hint is Balancing of an object depends upon its center of mass and gravity.

There are a lot of balancing rock around the world too, like in Europe, America, Canada, etc.
