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.

"An awesome place" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
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" new review

  • 0.5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
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.

"Healing power of Sulphur Spring"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Once upon a time this place was quiet country side. There was one building visited by Pt Jawaharlal Nehru frequently. Now things have changed tremendously. Too many shops and too much concrete construction. Still the main attraction of the place Sulphur Spring and Shiv temple in the cave is unchanged. Getting wet under thousands of droplets or bathing in the stream both are refreshing. Actually bathing under Sulphur Spring is good for curing skin problems. Some people carry this water home even to drink to get rid of stomach problems. There is ropeway also to climb up. Nothing special except eating joints. Loud music disturbs the peace of natural surroundings and is intolerable. Wish people learn to enjoy chorus of birds more!

If you are in Dehradun then you should at least once visit Sahastradhara. An awesome place to be with family or friends in the heart of nature. Clean and green environment.

I went there in my summer vacation. It is very nice place. It is situated in hilly areas where the view of sunset and sunrise make this place extremely good.
