Kailash Cave, Loyal Village – Length 125 meters/Width 8 meters

Chandan – The guide enhanced our knowledge about a newly found cave and we decided to visit. Scooty was not recommended because we have to drive uphill. A motorbike was required. This time I opted for the Hero Honda Splendor motorcycle. Cost Rs. 350 per day starting from 9 mornings till 9 night hours. Scooty is 100 rupees cheaper but then it is a risk to have it for an uphill drive I guess with two people.

At 11:15 we started our journey from Tapovan, Rishikesh and by 1:30 pm we reached the newly found cave i.e., Kailash Gufa, Loyal village. In between, we stop at Vashisht Gufa, Gular at 11:50 am.

Total journey time from Tapovan, Rishikesh to Kailash Cave, Loyal village: 2 Hours15 minutes.

Kailash cave is at Loyal village in Tehri Garhwal of Uttarakhand was discovered on 7th March 1997. A few village children were chasing sahi (Porcupine). It entered into a small space around rocks and when the rocks were removed huge cave was discovered by the villagers. The length of the Cave is 125 meters and the Width is 8 meters.
