In this tour, we will start from Lakshman Jhula. Enroute Vashishtha cave we will visit the hidden waterfall on the way. After spending some fun time at the waterfall, start your onward journey to Vashishtha Cave. The cab will drop you off at the parking lot. The cave was managed by Swami Purushottamananda Ashram. From the parking lot there is a 10 minutes walk to the cave. One has to climb a flight of around 200 steps. The view from the Vashishta Gufa is mesmerizing. The Gufa rejuvenates your soul because of its tranquil nature. Ganga River is 100-150 meters away from the Gufa. After exploring the Gufa, chill at the Ghat for sometime and one can also indulge in water activities (Optional). While returning we will take a short detour for tea and snacks and then we’ll be back to the point where we started from.
