Our trip was organised by the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Mountaineering Club; we were about 50 people (students and guests).

It is not advisable to visit the place by oneself or in a group of novices without someone really experienced. The place could be dangerous and it is a strong likelihood that you may meet some accident (or snakes in summer in those neck of the woods). The usual route to the JNU caves is from near the Sanskrit centre in the university.

The JNU Mountaineering club organises  such trips from time to time and you may contact the club for the next schedule. Even guests (not JNU students) are also welcome (and not a  single penny is charged from anyone). Click here for the sports page on the JNU website.

Alternatively, you may leave your contact no or email here and I can intimate you as and when the next trip is organised. Meanwhile, why not check out all the pics to feel less unfortunate?! 😉

Go ahead and click on the links in the sidebar titled ‘explore the caves’!

The caves are very exciting (check out the Caves – VI; it was a dark tunnel and we had a kinda Hollywood experience!).

dsc02430With us there was even a differently-abled guy who also scaled the caves succuessfully. Salutes to him! It is indeed our attitude that determines our altitude.

    Hey Vikas..
    Nice pics you got here. They were really exciting to look at, and as you said, especially Caves-VI.
    Btw, is the site created backwards, or I was going the other way!!! I couldn’t figure out. But I had a look at everything, nevertheless.. 🙂
    Looking forward for your river-rafting pics..(if you take the trip, that is) 🙂

    P.S.: I liked the way you used ‘differently-abled.’ Wish everyone could be that thoughtful (including me!)

    Thanks Ambika! It is all categories (1 to 9)in that order.

    The terminology for the physically challenged has always been debatable. The term ‘differently-abled’ originated in the US (some committee) but even this is not free from controversy.

    May go to Rishikesh. Will keep you posted.
