Lakhaniya Dari waterfalls cascades down from a height of about 150 m into a pool. The falls looks more beautiful and magnificent during monsoon when it is in full strength. Waters of this fall are stored in Ahraura Dam which is used for irrigation purpose to surrounding village farms and fields. It is a picnic spot for families and a small adventure for trekkers.
One needs to trek 2-3 km from the entry gate to reach the Main waterfall. Visitors need to cross huge rocks, rivulets, jungles etc. and it takes around one and half hours. It is a lonely place and very less people do trekking for the main waterfall, prefer going in groups only. Try to cover this place in day time only. Do carry your own food as there is no eating joint nearby.
The water is very deep and rocks are mysterious. Every year there are cases when people get in to water and then never come back. So if you want to get into water, walk some distance towards downstream and then do whatever you want.
Entry: Rs. 50 per Person, Rs. 50 for Parking
