Arjun Gufa is considered to be a legendary natural formation in Manali. The cave is a favourite picnic spot and is also famous for the adventure of exploring the creation from inside. It is located on the left side of River Beas and is very close to beautiful Prini Village. The climb up to the cave is exciting in itself with the surrounding natural landscape so beautiful it cannot be explained in words. The Arjun cave is a narrow path into a hill. With no light entering after a point, one has to explore and find their way into the cave through the darkness using flashlights. The uneven passage inside makes the exploration more exciting. At a little distance inside, one is required to descend to reach a base area. It takes about 45 minutes to explore the whole cave.
Arjun Gufa is mostly associated with the legendary figure, Arjun, one of the Pandava Brothers. It is believed that Arjun meditated in the cave by the banks of River Beas for years. Lord Shiva, pleased with his devotion and dedication, blessed him with the Pashupata Astra. The trek up the cave draws many enthusiasts. The walkway goes through lush green meadows, tall pine trees and cement steps that make exploring the location an enrapturing experience. Many tourists visit Arjun Gufa to check if the legend is true and some visit just for the fun of it.
