DAMOH WATERFALLS

Damoh Waterfall is a 4-5 hour drive from Jaipur, near Mehandipur balaji temple, and this is a 300 feet tall waterfall near Jaipur, which is quite a popular place to visit in moon season.

When I reached this Damoh Waterfall, I simply was stunned to look at its beauty, as the region is full of lush forests & greenery. Water falls down from a height of 300 feet, like a single cascade of water and the wavy rock patterns through which the water falls down is very scenic. It is like a semi-circular hole into which the water falls down.

I saw tourists down at the bottom of the waterfall bathing in the pool. There are many rocks here so it can become slippery, so I would advise you to be careful when climbing the rocks.

I took my Innova and surprisingly the road leading up to the waterfall is good for SUVs or small cars. The entire place is perfectly suited for nature lovers.
