“Sair kar duniya ki gafil, Zindagani fir kahan


Zindagani gar rahi toh naujawani fir kahan”


Dear friends, see the world, explore the world as you live only once and the best time to do it is while you are young.


I believe in these words and keep exploring different places as and when I get time.


This time I am exploring Marble Rocks in Bhedaghat which is 21 kms from the city Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh.


This place is known for marble rocks of different colours and the river Narmada which passes through these rocks.


The place where these rocks begin is called Dhuandhaar Fall. It has been named like this because of the force of the water and the height from where the water falls between rocks.


The force is such that you can feel the shower if you are standing close to the fall. It offers an amazing view. Its amazing to watch these rocks during fool moon and you can see these on a boat ride for Rs. 30 per person. There are various options if you want to hire a full boat you have to spent rs. 850/-, another one is a motorboat which is faster.


The guide entertains you with his running commentary in hinglish. Its a zigzag ride and it takes you from bhedaghat to Dhuandhar fall in 1 hour. You can see different shades of marble during the cruise. Guide shows and explains the important places along with a couple of Shiva Pindis. The water is as deep as 450 feet. No one should try swimming as there are rocks which are not visible from outside.


There are various small shops where you can get interesting marble articles such as nameplates, necklaces, shivalings, mirrors studded with shells and marble and other items. There is a canteen which offers thali and other food items.


Once you are done with the boat ride, its time for the Ropeway. Around 1 km ahead, there is the ropeway station. One ride costs rs. 60/ per person. This ride takes you to the other side of the fall right above the mesmerizing Dhuandhar fall. Once you reach the other side, you can walk alongside the river Narmada, have snacks in the canteen, Just sit, watch the fall and relax.


You can explore the ropeway station side of the fall ( Ropeway starting point) walk on the rocks ( carefully) and feel the cold and pure water of Holi River Narmada. One can take bath as well but there is no changing room :-(


How to reach:


Jabalpur is well connected by trains and roads, There is a flight too (Once in a day-Jabalpur – indore-delhi). Once you reach Jabalpur, you can hire a vehicle to reach Marble Rocks. Buses and Tempos are not convenient.


Where to stay:


Jabalpur has fair number of luxury hotels along with numerous budget hotels. One good hotel is Hotel Samdarya. Delux AC room starts from rs. 1500/- a day. Excellent food as well. Otherwise you can explore various options around the place. Many good restaurants for veg and non veg food, Oe such restaurant is Hrishi Regency.


The best time to visit:


Best time to visit this place is between November to March. I have visited this place during rains too but at times water flows above the guard stone. In such case you may have to wait as there is no other root to get back to the city.


Other places to visit in Jabalpur:


Madan Mahal Fort, Tilwaraghat, Chausat YoginiTemple, Rani Durgavati Museum, Khandari Tank.


Some near by tourist ttractions are Pachmarhi, Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, Kanha Kisli national park, Khajuraho temples etc.
