Patal Pani is a wonderful waterfall situated at a distance of 36 km from the city of Indore. The waterfall has a height of about 300 ft. But the depth of the water pit formed at the base of the waterfall is not known. The legend prevalent about the waterfall is that the pit reaches the underground or patal and hence the name “Patal Pani”.
During the hot summer season, the waterfall almost dries up. The stream during that period of the year is as good as a trickle. But the waterfall gains its full glory after the rainy season. By the month of July the water can be seen in its full power, rushing down the fall.
The waterfall is a famous picnic spot and trekking area. But the waterfall has flash floods in the monsoon season, which makes it dangerous to venture close to the fall at that time.
