Rabandarh

Rabandarh is a place of great scenic beauty lying about 12.8 km from Bhawanipatna and approachable by a dusty road. It is named after a small water fall inside a mountain gorge. The panorama around provides, some delightful contrasts of scenery, in mountains and over looking dales, in bore rocks and thick forests and in the eternal calmness of the surroundings broken by the music of the fall. Despite bad communications, picnic parties sometimes visit the place from Bhawanipatna, as there is no market nearby. The stream which creates the fall almost dries up during the hot season. Downstream, a minor Irrigation Project utilizes its water for agriculture purposes.
