Jalawataran Duchess Fall Overview

Ranked 12 of 56 sightseeing in Pachmarhi

The Jalwataran Dutchess Waterfall located near Pachmarhi hill station in Madhya Pradesh is a favourite amongst visitors to Pachmarhi. Although Pachmarhi is dotted with numerous waterfalls, the Dutchess Waterfall holds a unique distinction of being one of the most challenging and adventurous waterfalls to reach to.

Located amidst dense foliage of trees, there is no paved way to reach the scenic waterfall and one has to walk down a steep descent of 3-4 km to reach here. Although the trek could be arduous and tiring, the fruit of this hard work is worth the effort. The water from this waterfall plunges into three different cascades and visitors can take a refreshing shower in the waterfall. There is doctor fish in the pool formed here, so don’t be alarmed if you find these miracle fish nibbling away the dead skin from your feet.

The most remote waterfall in Pachmarhi, Jalwataran Dutchess is also credited as being the most beautiful waterfall around, attracting numerous tourists despite of the challenging terrain. The idea of a refreshing dip in the cold waters of this surreal water body, the alluring sight of the roaring water, and the bounty of nature make this waterfall a popular spot amongst the tourists.

Feels exhausted after the visit

Peoples with arthritis problems and old age should not visit this place. After visiting this Fall you will be completely exhausted. So plan it for one half with some lighter sites in another half.
