The Dhuandhar Falls (धुआंधार) is a waterfall in Jabalpur district in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.[1]

Etymology[edit]

The word Dhuandhar is derived from two Hindi words - Dhuan -(smoke) +Dhar (to own) meaning a waterfall which owns smoke (this smoke is formed by water vapours or the smoke cascade).

The falls[edit]

The Dhuandhar Falls are located on Narmada River in Bhedaghat and are 10 meter high. The Narmada River, making its way through the world-famous Marble Rocks, narrows down and then plunges in a waterfall known as Dhuandhaar. The plunge, which creates a bouncing mass of mist, is so powerful that its roar is heard from a far distance.
