Robber Cave - must visit

Very good place to visit.. take your rubber slippers or sandals along.. If you are visiting Dehradun, make sure that you are not missing this place. wonderful place in summers to have bath under the water fall. This is a natural cave formation and within that flowing a water fall with real cold water. The water level reaches at around knee level at some sections of the cave path, so wear cloths and slippers/sandals accordingly. But, the walk through the water is really amazing.

Natural cave made by river flow

Robber's cave is about 14km from Dehradun main bus stand. You will get direct bus to vijepur. From there its 1km. This is a cave made because of river flow. The water is cery clear and you can walk without any problem. Its about half an hour walk to reach the other end of the cave. in the middle you can see a small canteen as well

Awesome breathtaking open caves with crystal cold clear water flowing.. Good spot to hang out for a days picnic with family or friends.. Loved the tables placed on the flowing water and enjoying Maggi and momos.. While enjoying the beautiful nature.. I felt there is nothing worth while seeing in Doon till I saw this place.. Visit to this place surely recommend..

Very offbeat location

The first look of Robbers Cave will astonish you if you haven't heard of the place before. It is a very deep cave with water running through it. It is a delight walking in that water and exploring the hidden waterfalls within this cave. Try to wear shorts or capris when you plan to visit that place

Robbers Cave or Choro ki gufa

As the name suggests it happened to be a hide out place for thieves or robbers long back (as specified by our taxi driver) I was actually curious for the beauty and the same got unveiled after actually visiting this place. Was there for more than an hour and enjoyed the place thoroughly. Bring sandles or chapples as you would need these here as well as in Mussorie and Rishikesh and Haridwar. Nice rubber slippers will do. Floaters are also nice option. Food available and washroom facilities were available.

Just fantastic place to visit

The caves are just fantastic. The more you go inside, the deeper in the caves that you get. It seems you are in some location of Pirates of the Carribean. I think this is the best place to go in Dehradun, even better than the Campty Falls. However take care to carry a poly bags for keeping your mobile purse etc, as otherwise they may get wet. You will also need to keep some slippers along with you

A nice place

It is exiting place to visit. It is an open cave with running water upto one feet. It is 4 to 8 feet wide, height varies from 100 to 200 feet. It gives pleasure to walk in running water. Slippers of all sizes are available to walk in water. Rent is olny 10 per pair. They keep your shoes and sandals safely. Inside the cave at a depth of about 300 meter is a water fall. Here one can climb the rocks also.
