- Mouth: The Narmada river drains into the Gulf of Khambat (the Arabian Sea) near Bharuch in the state of Gujarat.
- The river flows in a rift valley between the Vindhyas in the north and the Satpura in the south.
- The river forms a picturesque gorge in marble rocks.
- The Narmada forms the Dhaundhar waterfalls, southwest of Jabalpur.
