Guna Cave, Kodaikanal

2.8
#5 of 10 in Nature in Kodaikanal
Trek through a dense forest to reach Guna Cave, one of the area's most mysterious locations, made popular by the Tamil movie "Guna." Although you cannot enter the cave itself, you can hike around its misty and rugged landscape covered in an entanglement of roots, with monkeys frolicking in the trees. Top off your visit with a trek to a hilltop with a view, from which you can observe a lush valley surrounded by vast rolling mountains.

  • Guna cave entry ticket is Rs 10. Best to visit on morning time. Beautiful location for taking photos. Lots of tree route around you. Mist and cloud touching around you.i enjoyed lot..... beware of monkeys.... toilet facilities available
  • This place is also known as Devil's Kitchen. It is called as Guna's Cave by locals as scenes in movie 'Guna' are pictured here. Cave is very steep and is closed to the public. There will a tree with very long roots which makes it look good for pictures. There is also small observatory from where you can see amazing views. Beware of the monkeys and keep all the food items inside.
  • Visited kodaikkanal many a times that by now there is nothing new for me. But Guna Caves is one place I will never miss out. I still wonder like a kid how a huge mass of land still stands tall. For the cliff that gives you a picturesque view is separated from mainland. Added to it there is a watch tower on the cliff. I am sure it will fall down once with hundreds of travellers searching the depth of the valley. I guess I too will be air bound, cheering, onto the valley. Happy to the there...
  • Very good tourist place but they closed with grills. Now no one can't able to see the caves. It's older name is Devils kitchen after finally film the name changed to Guna caves. From very top we can see.
  • serves as a location for a couple of photo snaps (good background) costs 20rs per head... also u can see a couple of monkeys and people... site of natures good art of tree roots enjoyed seeing them...
