2.7
#5 of 11 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.

  • It’s really a nice place, and it’s old name was devils kitchen. Actually as the name the place give that feel and also local people have lots of scary things to say about devils kitchen. It different but beautiful. I feel the curly roots like curly hair of ghost👻
  • It's an Amazing place to visit... This place just looks like a Hollywood horror movie set. Thick mist with long tree roots gives you a such an amazing experience.... The view from the view point is amazing but most of the time the view is covered By thick mist.... This is a must watch place in Kodaikanal
  • Above 7000feet one can feel and touch the clouds. Very chilled place. Most of the time people will not able to see the cave and four pillar rocks due to dence cloud. Any way to enjoy the nature and refreshment it is a very good place.
  • Guna Caves is part of all Kodaikanal local sightseeing tours. The actual caves are closed with grills to avoid accidents. The path leading up to this spot is cool and covered with tall old trees. At the spot you can view Deep roots of very old trees and after climbing some ground beautiful cliff views.
  • 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.
