About Robbers’ cave
Robbers’ cave, locally known as Gucchu Paani, is a natural river cave in the Himalayas in Dehar Plateau in Dehradun. The total length of the cave is six hundred metres, divided into two main parts. The cave has the highest fall of approximately ten metres.
The central part of the cave has a fort wall structure which has now been broken. It consists of a narrow gorge formed in a conglomerate limestone area on Doon Valley’s Dehra Plateau.
It is the story behind the origin of the cave that attracts tourists to visit Robbers cave. It is ten km away from the central city. As you gradually ride up to the hills, you will discover the magnificent view that enthrals you. You will see a big monster-like face on the entrance gate. As you gradually walk inside the cave, the way gets narrower, so you must be careful while going inside.
#Quicktip: Make sure you wear comfortable clothes such as shorts or pyjamas to walk easily and comfortable slippers or flip-flops to walk safely. If you forget to get your slippers, you can quickly rent them at Rs.10 per pair.
With crystal clear water, the gorgeous shining pebbles underneath, and the sunlight streaming in between the gaps, make this cave more beautiful. You can enjoy spending three to four hours relaxing in the cave.
A word of caution: It is best to avoid going inside the cave in monsoons as the water level rises drastically, making it difficult to walk. You risk injuring yourself by falling and making this a more painful trip than a joyful one. Be careful of flash floods or a sudden gush of water during monsoons.
