    Last summer we were in Khajuraho (Madhya Pradesh, India) when we happened to visit this mesmerizing place called the 'Raneh Falls'. First things first I have never seen anything like this before and was amazed to another level that we have such rock formations in India.ย ๐Ÿ’›

    Going by the name I was expecting a huge waterfall but there was just a thin stream of waterfall. While I was disappointed with the waterfall, the intricate rock formations and varied colors of graynite gave me another high.

    The Ken river (also Karnavati river )actually comes from Vindhyachal Hills, which are 125 kms from here and go further 200 kms from here till Banda in UP where it merges with river Yamuna. In whole journey of 325 kms, this canyon formation exists only in five kilometre length.

    Even in this five kilometre length this canyon has variable depth and that actually creates the beauty of this ย Raneh falls. At some places it is upto 50 metres. Interesting is the fact that you canโ€™t see the beauty of this place during monsoon, when Ken river is in full flow.

    As with Raneh falls, here is also an observation deck atop the hill overlooking vastness of river. One can go down and do boating here in the river and donโ€™t be afraid- crocs or gharial will not attack you. Boating here is very soothing and relaxing experience. ๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿšฃโ€โ™€๏ธ
