Soaring in sculpturesque splendour, the marble rocks with darker volcanic seams of green and black, rise to an unbelievably 100 ft on either side of the calm crystal-clear waters of Narmada, thus creating a mesmerising backdrop to behold especially on moonlit nights. Nearby, the river narrows and plunges dramatically over the breathtaking Dhuandhar Falls, also known as the 'Smoke Cascade'.
