5 Cave Waterfalls You Must Visit On Your Next Trip To Rishikesh

Do you know that there are caves behind waterfalls at times? It’s because a waterfall’s base can be eroded so rapidly that it recedes. As a  result, a hollow cave-like structure gets created behind the waterfall. How beautiful is mother earth’s creation isn’t it. And every time we talk about a beautiful place, Rishikesh surely pops into our mind. So here are some cave waterfalls that you must visit on your next trip to Rishikesh. 

1. Patna Waterfalls

Patna waterfall is right next to Patna village in Rishikesh which is about 7 km from the famous Laxman Jhula. The biggest highlight of this waterfall is the limestone cave. The water here is ice cold so better be prepared for it. To reach the cave you will have to climb the waterfall a bit. The cascading water and the lush greenery around make it a worth visiting place.
