The Falls[edit]

The Keoti Falls is on the Mahana River, a tributary of Tamsa or Tons River as it comes down from the Rewa Plateau. It has a total height of 98 metres (322 ft).[2][3] World Waterfall Database puts the height of the waterfall at 130 metres (430 ft).[4] It is a segmented type waterfall with a single drop.[4]

Knick point, also called a nick point or simply nick, represents breaks in slopes in the longitudinal profile of a river caused by rejuvenation. The break in channel gradient allows water to fall vertically giving rise to a waterfall. Keoti Falls is an example of a nick point caused by rejuvenation.[5]
