  • Even though we didn't find water falling downwards from the waterfalls, this place is still worth visiting. You can view 5 different colours of the rocks and the crater.  more »

  • It's the place you go to expecting a water fall but end up seeing only rock gorges. Raneh falls has water only in June July and September and if you're lucky in October. Otherwise you get to see only the rocky gorges and pools of water. The view point ahead has good views though.
  • Granite, basalt, dolomite and quartz stones near the volcano crater whose magma formed all these stones in the middle of Panna national park, the whole sight was a treat to the eyes. Go a little further deeper you will witness a gharial sanctuary. On the way and coming back enjoy the wild life. Though the entry fee of Rs 675 may appear a little bit costly to some, but believe me it is worth going in.
  • Only rocks no water at sight. Deep rocks. Price of ticket too much. They should reduce the entry fee for this not so good falls as no water is seen falling
  • Only place in India where I've seen a canyon. Rocks in green, black and red provide an excellent backdrop for your display pictures while you soak up the breeze. Best time to visit - early morning or evening to avoid the sun. Cycling from Khajuraho to Raneh is a great experience - 20 kms can be covered in an hour and a half at an easy pace.
  • Nature unfolds here to the extreme. It's beautiful and amazing to watch the rocks as I visited this in off season. This is actually a mini Grand Canyon of India. If you're in Khajuraho this place is 20kms away, Do visit it. And if you wanna see Niagara Falls of India then visit here in Monsoon season.
