Khandadhar Falls (Odia: ଖଣ୍ଡାଧାର ଜଳପ୍ରପାତ) is located in Kendujhar district in the Indian state of Odisha. Kahandhar is 54 km. away from Keonjhar town of Odisha.

Khandadhar Fall is located in Khandadhar Hill, one of the hills partially in Keonjhar district. On the opposite side of the hill, there is another waterfall with the same name. Khandadhar Falls, Sundagarh which is located in Banei subdivision of Sundagarh district.

It is a 500 ft (152 m) high waterfall in the midst of a dense forest. It has a “smoke like” appearance created by the spraying of water as it cascades down the rock face.

At little after the origin of the waterfall, the cataract appears like an avalanche gushing down in flakes. Each flake looks like a meteor which makes a shimmering line as the fall comes in contact with the large flat rock on its half way down. Every time there is a sudden squall, the waterfall oscillates and takes the shape of an avalanche of snowflakes. The sparkling water drops leave everybody doused. The most captivating sight is the rainbow which is formed at the base of the water fall, and the rainbow appears to dance as the water fall oscillates.
