Paataal paani, near MHOW, Indore

Here are views of Paataal Paani, a scenic spot near MHOW, in Indore, Madhya Pradesh (central India).
The waterfall is little more than a trickle off-season, but the whole place turns green and vibrant in the monsoons.
Alongside is a metre-guage railway track, and the spot offers obvious opportunities to turn into a modern picnic spot with cable cars and walkways. But I prefer it 'raw'!

(Tried to make do with a few words!)

These are pictures of the same place during the rainy seasons - July - September
The waterfall reaches a very deep gorge, which the locals have baptised as 'paataal' - meaning nether-world.

Thanks, Lt Col R, for sharing!
