Sahastradhara literally means ‘thousand-fold spring’. It is a popular attraction, famous for its medicinal & therapeutic value as its water contains sulphur. Sahastradhara is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Uttarakhand and is situated about 14 km from the city of Dehradun, near Robber’s Cave.

Also known as Sulphur Springs, this waterfall cascades through limestone stalactites, making the water rich in sulphur. A dip in the Sulphur-rich water here feels cold and refreshing but is believed to have remarkable medicinal advantages. The temperature of the water here is a little lower than its surroundings. Its picturesque beauty attracts a lot of travellers from faraway places. One can even enjoy a stunning view of the mountains on a fun ropeway ride.


The Shastradhara

The area has widespread serenity and tranquillity, with rich Himalayan vegetation. The water here has a fall of around 9 meters. Since this region has a sedimentary accumulation of Lime and Sulphur, one can spot a plethora of brownish-orange elements in the surrounding caves.
