Trek through a dense forest to reach Guna Cave, one of the area's most mysterious locations, made popular by the Tamil movie "Guna."

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 nice place to visit. However if they would have made some arrangements to visit inside the caved would have been more enjoyable. 
  • The place is easily accessible by road. It lies on the road coming from pine trees and further down he road, you find pillar rocks. Parking is a big issue as you have to park on the roadside which leads to congestion. There are loads of monkeys on the way so be careful. After parking, you pay for the admission price and climb steep stairs to start your walk towards the cave. The path meanders through scenic forest and then leads to the way to Guna Cave. The way to the cave is blocked by iron fencing and visitor access is rightfully denied because the cave is not easily accessible. It requires to navigate a steep cliff face which would pose a security hazard. Hence you are left gawk at the tree obscured entrance of the cave through the grills. You move to the right and come across a viewing platform overlooking the valley nearby. There is rush on the platform and one of the rungs/stair is broken and damaged and hence you have to skip it while going up and down. If the valley is covered in fog/mist, then there is nothing viewable. You can enjoy the mist flowing across your face at the max.
  • Good place to spend some time. But not a must visit.
  • Although tourists are not allowed into the cave anymore .. The walk up to the entrance among the misty pine trees was great . Not very clean .. People should really learn to not throw bottles and stuff everywhere ..
  • nice place for burning some calories...nice view when there is no mist...
  • Beutiful Place
