Almost 1/2 km. from the Bhainsaghat Rest House towards the Bhainsa village, a road goes to this waterfall. 1 km. from the main road a stream between the high black rocks flows down from more than 100 ft's hight. This is called Nidan Kund. During the months of July and August there is much water in the stream so the sight of this fall from the front is breath taking.
