At a distance of 5 km from Mandu Bus Stand, Kakda Kho Water Fall is a seasonal waterfall located in Mandu, Madhya Pradesh. Situated on Mandav - Dhar Road, it is one of the wonderful places to visit in Mandu.

Situated at an altitude of about 633 m, Mandu is separated from the main plateau of Malwa by a deep gorge called Kakda Kho. This deep gorge is the venue for the stunning Kakda Kho Waterfall and is the first scenic spot where almost all the tourists will stop to see the stunning ruins of Mandu. It cascades down from a height of about 250 to 300 feet. The waterfall looks stunning in the monsoon season, and there is no water during summer.

Kakda Kho Valley and Falls is located on the main road of Mandu. The government has built a fence over the waterfalls so that no accidents happen. There is a viewpoint just a short distance away from the waterfall, from where one can get a beautiful view of the valley. To reach this viewpoint, one has to cross the waterfall. There were many shops that sell different types of food items, and there were a lot of monkeys too.

Monsoon season is the best time to visit the waterfall when the waterfall is in full strength. In the rainy season, this valley is covered with a sheet of greenery, which doubles its beauty.
