Incredible ...

A must visit place in Khajuraho. Scene is very b'ful & refreshing. You can see KEN river at the bottom of the rocks. Entry Fees of Rs. 50 per head is charged but would advice to hire a vehicle else you have to walk a lot. We hired a scooty for our day visit.

India's Grand Canyon

Some places capture your imagination. Raneh Falls is one of them. Situated 20 km away from Khajuraho, Raneh Falls is a natural rock formation made up of Granite rocks. River Ken flows through the rock formation. This becomes a spectacle to be seen especially during the monsoon season, when the sound of the river can be heard far and wide.There is a road that leads you to the top of the rock formation, with no trekking involved. Gharials can be seen idling on rocks.This place is the perfect spot for clicking amazing pictures. Highly recommended.

India's Grand Canyon - Raneh falls

Approach road to Raneh falls is not very good but it's worth the travel as India's Grand Canyon comes alive here. Most of the creations were due to volcanic eruption millions of years back. There is also Ken Riyal sanctuary here where you can see Crocodiles.

Our own Grand Canyon

Raneh falls can be rightly called as our desi version of the Grand Canyon. The rock formations are fascinating and the Ken river flowing through the majestic gorges is a sight to see. It is said that during monsoons the glowing Ken river covers the entire gorge which is a sight I'd love to see someday. Just 5 km from the falls is an alligator spotting ridge which you should definitely checkout!

Natural wonder, fascinating canyon

Forming over the path of Karnavati or Ken river, Raneh Falls and canyon is an interesting detour from Khajuraho. The canyon is 5 km long and was formed by volcanic action. So the rocks are igneous and very colorful.During monsoons the water flow is pretty strong and there are several waterfalls that form along the canyon. I was told it is quite a sight. Although, post monsoon could be the ideal time when both the rocks are visible and waterfalls are gushing too. I visited in winter when the water flow had almost completely dies down, canyon looked gorgeous though.Highly recommend listening to the information from the local guide before exploring on your own.

Raneh Falls and our own desi grand canyon

I was fascinated by the rock formations here, created as an effect of volcanic activity. It's a bit hazy during the day, so plan your visit around sunset. The falls by themselves were a bit of a disappointment but our guide said that during monsoons, you can hear the roar as far as Khajuraho. It's a great spot to hike or just sit and enjoy the landscape. Don't miss the Grail Sanctuary where you can spot gharials although they are rather far. If you are lucky you can spot some deer as well. There are small shops here if you want to buy some souvenirs.

Canyon & Waterfalls at Raneh Falls.

Located 20 kms from Khajuraho, Raneh Falls is a naturally formed waterfall in river Ken. While crossing the Bijawar - Panna Hills the river Ken forms a beautiful 60 kms long natural and deep canyon made of crystalline granite, quartz and dolomite. They give off lovely hues of pink, red, green and grey and are a sight to behold. We had done this trip to Raneh Falls from Khajuraho somewhere in November and the pictures shared show the untamed natural beauty of the beautiful gorges. During and immediately after monsoon the gorges fill up and the place has a different view. Roaring river Ken flowing in full forces and many more waterfalls. There is a lovely shop selling Panna Tiger Reserve products and some quick bites / refreshments. Others places to visit, besides Khajuraho, are Ken Ghariyal Sanctuary, Pandava Falls and Panna Tiger Reserve
