Bhedaghat, Madhya Pradesh

Bhedaghat, situated approximately 20 km from Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh, is known for the cluster of marble rocks which lie on the opposite banks of river Narmada. The marble rocks, soar to a hundred feet and sparkle when sunlight falls on it. Bhedaghat, it is believed, evolved from the name Bhairav-ghat.
Besides those in white, marble rocks in white, pink and blue are a sight to behold. The white rocks with seams of black and dark green are worth watching. The entire spectacle undergoes transformation on moonlit nights.
The river itself is object of veneration. Narmada originates from Amarkantak and flows into the Arabian Sea. Among the most sacred rivers of India, it is believed a dip in the river washes away sins. According to Hindu mythology, Ganga river became polluted by millions of people taking dip in her waters to wash away their sins. To cleanse herself, Ganga acquired the form of a black cow and took bath in Narmada. Narmada is considered daughter of Lord Shiva.
Narmada which flows placid soon turns turbulent as it plunges to depth of 98 feet at Dhuandhar. The plunge creates a mass of mist and presents an awesome spectacle.

Tincha Falls - Indore

Tincha Falls is a waterfall about 10km off from Simrol, a village on the Indore-Khandwa road. Tincha village now has tar roads and so the ride is pleasant. From the village, the falls is just a km away and the genial villagers help you find the way easily. It helps that there is a signboard where we need to turn right from Tincha village.As we enter the falls area, we are enraptured by the huge flowl and the valley .
