Sahastradhara, located at a distance of around 14 km from the heart of the city, is a popular tourist attraction of Dehradun. Literally meaning 'Thousands fold Spring', Sahastradhara is a beautiful spring, having a depth of around 9 m.

Owing to the presence of sulphur in the water of this spring, it is believed to have medicinal value. Besides medicinal merits, the spring is also known for its beautiful views. The beauty of this spring is further enhanced by the surrounding caves and Baldi River.

The water of this spring has lime, which contributes towards the formation of projecting ridge that eventually takes the shape of a cave. Due to its medicinal properties and beautiful views that can be enjoyed at this place, Sahastradhara is popular among a large number of tourists.

"Awesome place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This place is famous for the waterfall and the Sai temple at the top which can be reached by the ropeway, which in itself is a good fun. At the top food is good in the restaurant and the park is also well maintained.
Happy Holidaying !!
Warm Regards

"Sahastradhara"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 2, 2016
Went there to see why is this place so famous amongst others. Saw kawar's all around the place. Which some how disturbed the ecology. As there's Shiv ji's Temple nearby, people were enjoying the small waterfall rather than treating the water as a holy water for the mighty God. Be there once if you have time else can be skipped.

Nice bath place for romantic couple, but there is nothing to see else and we have to reach there after 13 km from Dehradun. Not to cool place so can say if you are not interested in bath it is not so useful place, but the scenes are very nice little adventure anyone can go once.

"Good place to enjoy"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 20, 2016
Good place to enjoy natural running water. It can be developed more by tourism department looking to the number of tourists. Private dhabas provide changing room and lockers on charge. We found it safe. They also provide food but hygiene is a problem. Purchase only packed food and drinks. They also supply cold beer in the water.

"An awesome place"

  • Posted Apr 28, 2016
Awesome place. Away from the commercialization. Cold pure water and the best part is the tyres in water on which you can play around. But it lacks cleanliness.

"Terrible experience"

  • 0.5/7
  • Posted Apr 9, 2016
Visiting this place was a big mistake. But yes i was going there after 27 years. It was only during during childhood that I visited there with my family.

It took us half an hour to reach there from our hotel Four Points by Sheraton. But it is the most dirty and filthy place I have ever by chance visited or seen in my life.

Please don't waste your time at this spot.
