Sahastradhara literally means ‘flow of thousand springs’. It is a place where the Baldi River flows through the hilly terrain. History says, it was here that the teacher of the Pandavas and the Kauravas, Sage Dronacharya had his residence. The river water flows from quite a height leaving residues of limestone and thus making this fall water full of sulphur when it goes into the stream.

The stream is said to have many medicinal values due to the presence of sulphur. It has collection of water pools where water drips from limestone stalactites, turning it to sulphur spring. The best thing is the temperature of the water which is not at all extreme, given the temperature of the surroundings. This place also serves as a popular tourist attraction and a picnic spot. The picture perfect backdrop of the Himalayan Range and the serene greenery makes it heavenly.

The attractions surrounding this place of are the Robber’s cave which is formed due to actions of nature and limestone residues. The water rippling down the ceiling and playing hide-n-seek is a must visit. Besides this is the Tapakeshwar Temple. There is also an amusement park called ‘Joy land’. It is an ideal place for the children to have lots of fun.
