Sahastradhara literally means 'thousand-fold spring'. It is a popular attraction, famous for its therapeutic value since its water contains sulphur. While the place can be visited any time during the year, you would love the charming beauty of the waterfall during the rainy season. Sahastradhara is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Uttarakhand and is placed in the picturesque town of Dehradun.
Water drips from limestone stalactites, making the water sulphur-rich and thus it is also known as Sulphur Springs. Sahastradhara is situated at about 11 km from the city of Dehradun, near the Robber's Cave. The temperature of the water here is a little lower than its surroundings. Its picturesque beauty attracts a lot of travellers from faraway places. One can even enjoy a stunning view of the surroundings while enjoying a fun ropeway ride here. These ropeways provide airy trips to these gorgeous mountain tops.
The water in these pools is considered to have medicinal properties and therapeutic value. The area has widespread serenity and tranquillity, with rich Himalayan vegetation. A dip in the Sulphur-rich water here feels cold and refreshing but is believed to have remarkable medicinal advantages. The water here has a fall of around 9 meters. Since this region has been accumulating various sediments of Lime and Sulphur since its formation, one can spot a plethora of brownish-orange element in the form of caves.
