Robber’s Cave (locally known as Guchhupani) is a natural cave river formation that is one of the best places to visit for sightseeing in Dehradun.
The cave was used as a hideout by robbers under British rule, hence the name. Water formations can be seen moving through the caves from this vantage point.
The Robber’s Cave is divided into two parts by a fort-like structure and a waterfall. A fascinating natural process occurs at the cave known as Robber’s Cave when a stream of water that emerges and then disappears underground and again reappears after a few yards.
Robbers Cave is a popular tourist attraction in Uttarakhand that is calm, quiet, and perfect for picnics.
Similar caves can be found in Dehradun’s Sahastradhara. The area is an example of amazing stone cave construction. Gucchu pani is a narrow gorge, ie Nero Gauge Cave.
Robbers used Robber’s Cave to hide from the British in the late 1800s. The robbers found it easiest to hide here because of the cave’s natural and local conditions.
Robbers used to hide in the labyrinth caves, which is why it was given the name Robber’s Cave. Locals claim the caves were used by thieves to conceal valuables. Spend some time in the great outdoors with your family and friends at Robbers Cave.
