Excellent destination for all those who you have the courage for adventurous water journey. it's around half kilometre tough walk on the running water with heavy flow. It's Risky at the time of heavy rains.

Went here on weekend during unlock-3. A must go for adventure lovers especially during monsoon, the water levels and flow will be high, making it more challenging. It seemed like a game of temple run because the cave is 400 meters long and has multiple obstacles to pass before you reach a waterfall on the other end.

Good place to spend some quality time. The MAGIC and Blessings cannot be guaranteed if you are sad from inside. But yes the ambience is better enjoyed when there is less crowd at this place. Road to robbers cave is a bit hectic journey!

Robbers Cave is open to enjoying between 07:00 am to 06:00 pm. The visit duration is around 4 hours. The visit should be made keeping in mind the local weather
Try not to visit this place in the evening. As it becomes very unmanageable due to the crowd. Also do not carry more stuff. Take plenty of water and some eatables with you when planning.
Very few professional guides are available at this tourist spot. You may hire the local guides, who will help you explore hidden places in the cave or nearby.
