2The Curious Case of The Name - Dhuandhar Falls, Madhya Pradesh
The Curious Case of The Name - Dhuandhar Falls, Madhya Pradesh

The name is 'Dhuandhaar' which is derived from dhuan, which means smoke and dhar, which means flow. The plunge is aggressive and its sound can be hear from a distance. At the point of drop, the water creeates an illusion of rising smoke.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sanjeev says, "I visited the waterfall in June, you should visit it before July or it will be closed and in winter there is no worth to visit. The White Rock is very beautiful and amazingly carved. It covers very vast area and so much peace with a noise of waterfall. There is a lot of places in Jabalpur also to visit."
