Guna Cave, Kodaikanal

2.7
#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 caves is a must visit point in kodaikanal. Entry point doesn't really justify it and repels lot of crowd. But I would suggest giving it a shot. You go through jungle in murky misty weather (at least in winters) for approx 500m. Then there are huge banyan trees with gigantic roots. You can easily climb over them. Once you reach the top, try exploring around, there is very sparse crowd there and is mostly safe. Great place for small picnics too.
  • Go at off season. U will enjoy kodaikanal never before it will be very free and can visit every place with no rush. Only u miss flowers heavy mist at places. But believe me it is best to go with less crowd at that time
  • I visited the place in Dec 2017.... It's such a beautiful place in kodaikanal ..... We visited the place around 11.00 am.. The white mist covered us many times it was a great experience...and feeling. The roots of the trees are exposed and it's a beautiful seen... Tourists are not allowed to visit the cave it's fences and that is bit dis appointing... Anyway you should not miss guna cave it's very nice
  • fantastic climate, full of mist, nature lover definitely love this place, but the cave is closed with grill after a death happened in the cave. (Devil's kitchen) Medusa roots in guna cave looks awesome. for security reasons so many restrictions are there.
  • Actually there is no cave. But U can see the growing roots of so many trees that have made a network, and it's amazing. Local peoples say that many years ago lions came there. Normally not so many visitors go there.

Where to stay in Kodaikanal

Unsurprisingly, the most upmarket accommodations in Kodaikanal sit by the lake. Offering extensive views of the central water features and the hills rolling off into the horizon, the rooms in such establishments usually come with a nice set of amenities including onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Shoestring travelers that want a central location can opt for simple hotels in the town center to the east, while those wanting to get out of town altogether will find a few scattered hotels along the main roads, as well as rental bungalows in secluded spots.
