The path down to the pool is mildly challenging but it leads to what must be the most enchanting place in Pachmarhi. At the bottom of 177 steps, including a few wide and shallow ones, there is a wooded gorge that has a tiny rivulet flowing down to the pool. The cliffs, rising all around, are towering parts of them forested. They open far above to admit a shaft of sunlight to illuminate the pool.
From a small cave, spot-lit by the beam of the sun, a stream of water gurgles out and spills over a miniature waterfall, into the pool. It is so crystal clear that the pebbles on its bottom are visible. From the pool, the water flows out into another wooded gorge and disappears beyond. This is such a magical and peaceful place that many visitors have said that they were most reluctant to leave.
