Mandawa waterfall is located in a place called Mandawa off the NH-16 (Jagdalpur-Geedam road), around 31km away from Jagdalpur. At Mandawa, the stream of water flows step-wise and falls from a height of 70 feet to make a beautiful cascade called Mandawa Waterfall.
The water from this waterfall collects there in a small reservoir and flows downstream meeting Kanger river forming two other waterfalls i.e. Tirathgarh and Kanger-dhara. Due to its flat top and adjacent horizontal rocks, it offers a good view.
