Robber’s Cave is a cave formation located a few kilometres away from the centre of Dehradun. It is locally known as Guchhupani. The interiors of the cave are so beautifully designed that it is hard to believe that is a naturally formed structure. It derives its name from the story that says that the robbers used this place as their hideout to escape from the British. The cave is a long, narrow structure and is divided into two portions. The cave boasts of the highest waterfall of the country. The central part of the cave is like a fort wall structure that is almost completely broken now, most probably due to the forces of water. It is an ideal picnic spot for all the tourists. The best feature is the surprising flow of the river. The river actually flows underground and cannot be seen, but once you go along a little more you will again spot the river flowing. The cave is guarded by hills all over as you walk a little more.

Robber's Cave, Dehradun Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great picnic spot. Nice drive to the place. The natural cave with water flowing is amazing. Wear Keds to walk in the water to the end point. Good place to take the kids for a day out. Crowded on weekends. Best time to visit in the monsoons!!

  • Area wise its not big but view is nice. If you are with your friends and want to chill out for few hours then it's a place to go. The water level is about 2 feet so you can just walk through the cave. Its a good idea to take slippers with you :)

  • Nice clear water. I do suggest to rent the slippers because it didn't and my feet were tortured like anything. There is a lot of gravel. The flow of water is a bit fast. Also, do keep a change of clothes coz as you proceed inside the water level rises. The cave is ethereal. There are shops offering food there too.

  • Can be done in 30 minutes or take your time with friends. Not challenging but feels like you actually did something good. Best nature activity in the area

  • Wonderful place for fun. Natural cave formation and waterfall. You can walk in the shallow water and even take a bath. Pro tip - always wear slippers and clothes which you would allow to get wet. :-) Welcome.
