Jabalpur Jabalpur tour



In the state at the center of India’s map, Madhya Pradesh is the location of Jabalpur. This city at the bank of river Narmada is one of the major cities of Madhya Pradesh. The architecture here holds colossal significance with the Gonds and the Kalichuris since they ruled it in the past. The city is full of places and activities that make it worth visiting. Oh, and there is the famous Khoye ki Jalebi (a local delicacy) to try too!


Dhuandhar Fallsis one of the top places to visit around Jabalpur. This 30 meters high waterfall is the water of the Narmada river that narrows down after passing through the Marble Rocks. The water comes down with such a speed that it appears to be smoke. That is why it is called Dhuandhar, meaning smoke and flow in Hindi. Both the sound and the view of the water are startling.


Along with Dhuandhar falls you can also visit the Marble rocks through an evening boat ride on Narmada river. The carving of the rocks by the Narmada river has made them a thing of beauty that beholds all the guests.


However, Jabalpur’s main claim to fame is being the gateway to prime Tiger territory, as far as India’s wildlife tourism goes. It has an airport which connects cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. From Jabalpur, India’s premier national parks, Kanha and Bandhavgarh, are 3-4 hours drive away.

Dhuadhar Falls


Marble Rocks


On our Tiger safari itineraries, we typically use Jabalpur as an air-hub and typically from Jabalpur the guests transit to Kanha or Bandhavgarh. However, often due to flight timings or logistics guests have to stay one night at Jabalpur. We strongly recommend spending an afternoon/evening at Marble rocks and Dhuandhar falls, which will surely be an unforgettable experience.


The sound of water coming down will be audible to you when you would still be on your way to theDhuandhar Falls. That is the kind of experience you will rejoice here. The sound of water is rip-roaring for the ears, the view is a delight to the eyes, and altogether it is a rekindle to the soul.


Every inch of your body will feel serene when you will be on the boat in the Narmada river. The yellow rays of sunlight fall on the white rock marbles giving them a sparkling look. The add on is the mist around due to the waterfall. The ropeway or the cable drive is an experience of thrill. Initially, it may seem a little scary, but once on it, you will enjoy yourself. It gives a beautiful view of the surrounding areas. Moreover, you can enjoy street food that the local vendors sell nearby. A visit to any place is incomplete without tasting the food there. If you do not prefer to eat street food, you can go to the restaurants nearby. Shop the artifacts, and have a lovely day.

Things to do around Jabalpur:

Be a Part of the Narmada Mahotsav: The duration of October to March is favorable for visiting theDhuandhar Falls of Jabalpur. However, the time of Sharad Purnima is considerably the best. It is due to the Narmada Mahotsav that the people here celebrate. It is a grand 3-day festival celebrating the Narmada river. It is full of art and culture, demonstrating the value of river Narmada to the locals.


Apart from this, the moon on the day of Sharad Purnima is full and also slightly orange. When it falls on the river and the white marbles, you will be speechless.

Take a Boat Ride: The boat ride in the Narmada river at Jabalpur is a must for the admirers of scenic beauty. Boating pleases all the senses of beauty through the enthralling sound of the waterfall and the beholding Marble Rocks that you will alongside on the Bhedaghat. You can go on a boat ride at any time between 10 am to 6 pm. However, it is more beautiful to boat in the marble valley before the sun starts to set, around 4 pm. It is the golden hour at that time. The marbles, the river, the sky, everything looks splendid during this hour. Furthermore, the light is perfect for clicking pictures with the pulchritudinous view in the background.


Collect Souvenirs: There are ample shops around Dhuandhar Falls. The maximum footfall in these shops is of tourists. As a result, they sell products that tourists can buy. The handcrafted marble products are the specialty of these shops. You can purchase them to take them back with you as souvenirs. Else, you can roam around the Falls, take pictures, sit there, and enjoy the beauty.


Ride on the Ropeway: The waterfall can be viewed from two sides, the east and the west of the Narmada river. The ropeway or the cab drive facility is there to take you to the other side. You can avail of the facility from the entrance gate of Bhedaghat. You can feel fear but don’t forget, the view from the top is mesmerizing. Do not worry about safety because the authorities ensure that the ropes are safe for the public. Make sure you do not go there during lunchtime because services at that time are temporarily closed.


Check out the Marble Rocks: A beholding thing of beauty is the general remark that the guests give to the Marble Rocks of Jabalpur. Marble Rocks are only at a distance of 1 kilometer from theDhuandhar Falls. The marbles have a white undertone and look superb when the sunlight gently falls on them. The same goes for moonlight. A continuous flow of the river on these marbles have caused cuts on it that add to its beauty. The top-notch part is that the guests can boat alongside these Marble Rocks and admire them closely while relishing the golden sunlight adding life to everything.
