Dehradun has always been a weekend gate away for Delhiites. Since the past 2 years, I’ve visited it many times by various mode of transportations. Last month my friends and I were discussing to go somewhere near Delhi for the weekend and we chose to go to Mussorrie but somehow ended up staying in Dehradun.

There was a lot of snow and rain at the time we reached, so we changed the plan and searched for nearby places to explore. I’d never imagined that we can find this beautiful waterfall coming crossing various cages and crystal clear water with rhythmic sound. That place called Sahastradhara in Khiroi, Uttrakhand. Sahastradhara, meaning thousand fold spring, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Dehradun.

The road headed towards the destination has a breathtaking and mesmerizing scenic view that anyone can fall in love with that. We had booked scooters to reach there and we had a blast.

The best memory I had of Sahastradhara is that we reached the top of the waterfall and got inside of the cave, already filled with clean and freezing water and swam inside that dark cave which was again an adventurous memory for the lifetime.

Dehradun is the capital of the Indian state of Uttarakhand, near the Himalayan foothills. At its core is the 6-sided Ghanta Ghar clock tower. To the southwest is Paltan Bazaar, a busy shopping area. Just east is the Sikh temple Gurdwara Nanaksar, topped with ornate white and golden domes.
