Duchess Fall :
Much more awesome is the Duchess fall (Jalavatran) which furiously hurtles down over hundred meters creating a deafening roar. There are a number of limpid pools near all these falls where swimming is safe and enjoyable. Pachmarhi Tour Enquiry
Handi Khoh : Handi Khoh, is the most impressive precipice, which dramatically cuts down over 100 meters deep into the bowels of earth. One can, by making a slight effort, hear the gentle murmur of flowing water and can spot huge undisturbed beehives clinging to the sheer rock face.
One can climb up the clouds dramatically in hues of gold and scarlet. Overhanging monsoon clouds bring about a total transformation of the landscape-shades of gray merging into the blue green of the mountains- all covered by a thin haze of drizzle. Standing alone at Dhupgarh at a time like this is a moving experience. The valleys and ravines exude a spine tingling charm of their owe.
Pandav Caves : The rock-cut Pandav caves are associated with the Pandavas of the epic Mahabharata. Pandavas had a halt here in their wanderings across India
An important rock formation is -a place sanctified by the Shaivite lore. The stones are indeed shaped like the mater hair of the great Hindu god Shiva, and inside a natural Cavern there is a stone formation like the hundred-headed divine snake Seshnag.

Complementing the magnificence of nature are the works of man; Pachmarhi is also an archeological treasure-house. In cave shelters in the Mahadeo hills is an astonishing richness in rock paintings. Most of these have been placed in the period 500-800 AD, but the earliest paintings are an estimated 10,000 years old.
