Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is better to start the route from Bandipur.
In an hour and a half of descent you will enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains, surrounded by greenery. Along the way you will meet a giant stone, a mountain of stones in the shape of a star, a small cliff on which you can take cool photos!
The cave itself is very large. Admission costs 200 rupees. You will be given a flashlight, because it is very dark in the cave. I strongly advise you to take a rechargeable LED lamp with you to take amazing photos!
Baba lives in the cave, there are many bats.
There are very beautiful places!
Dress in clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, because it's wet in the cave and you can easily get dirty during the study.
After the cave you will have to go back to Bandipur or go down to the village.
A taxi from the village to Bandipur costs about 1000 rupees.

Great way to spend the afternoon and lovely walk in nature. Good workout up and down the steps to the cave from Bandipur - walk though forest and see monkeys! The cave is impressive- almost half a km walk through. Bring good shoes and recommend your own headlamp(eventhough the guide carries one) as it's really dark and if you want to see more of the details inside. Expect basic ropes and ladders as you walk through the caverns and sections.

From Bandipur you first have to follow the signs to the monestry. Than nearly reaching it, you follow the pathway and steps all the way down to the cave. Be careful. Even with hikingboots the stones are very slippery! I also recommend to wear long trousers.the path is partly overgrown and there are some mosquitos. The way to the cave is easy to follow and very Beautiful. Just downwards with nice view and most of the time in the shade due to the trees. The cave is like exploring it. No light or settings inside, but nice little climbs and bets.

A cave filled with trash, depressingly sad. Foreigners get to pay 200/ locals 100 rupees to see a cave filled with trash. Save your money till they pay someone to clean the cave

There are two ways to access this cave:
From Bandipur via a long walk downhill through thick jungle - monkeys are at your footstep. Be aware that it will be very slippery at the stone paviours and you'll face loose ground as well. Wear proper walking boots - even necessary for the cave.
From Bimalnagar, on the highway, via a short and easy walk uphill.

First of all: The cave itself has light inside by now. But well, a cave is a cave - having a torchlight with you is always helpful.

We went there straight after lockdown, so no guide was around and no entrance fee was to pay. Aaaaand the above mentioned light was switched off. Luckily we've met a couple outside who was in there before - otherwise we would have missed out on exploring the cave 'cause I'm not to adventurous. And in fact it would have been quite dangerous. There are some slippery parts inside the cave (even in dry season) and very dark areas - it goes deep down. From what we could see the cave is impressive - so definetly worth a visit.

We took a bus from Bandipur down to Dumre and walked to Bimalnagar from where we hiked (1200 stairs) up to the cave. It was tiring but totally worth the workout. At the entrance guides welcomed and took us on tour for Rs200 per person. They provide torches but I recommend to bring your own headlamp. The cave is impressive and also challenging as you have to use ropes and ladders to get through the chambers.

This cave is a must visit place if you visit Bandipur or if you are traveling by the highway. One can hike down to it from Bandipur or hike up for 30/45 minutes from Bimal Bazar. It is a spectacular cave with lots of fascinating things to watch inside. Its an exciting cave must visit once by all.

We can find guide at the cave. I suggest you all to carry torch light and wear good sports shoes as the cave is dark and has uneven rocky, slippery surfaces.

This place can be travelled either from Bandipur down hill or Bimal Nager up hill. I tried from Bimal nagar, we travelled from Mugling towards this place, at afternoon we climbed since the sun would be little light to make the climbing easy. There are nice orange groves on the way and 1188 stair to reach the cave. But the pleasant chill air makes the way smooth to move on.There is a small fee for the entrance toward the cave. Tickets per person is NRS 100 and Nepali Students NRS 10 and guide charge is NRS 200 including the lights they carry along with them to show the beautiful limestone sculptures of the cave. As we approached the cave we could feel the cool breeze that welcomes you towards the cave. The limestone structures are just awesome and this was my first cave trek and believe me it was nice experience. The local guide will guide you to all the way and tell you everything about the caves. So just enjoy every bit of it. After the trek we even enjoyed the beautiful view from the cave entrance. We can even see the Chundi Khola and Marasyangdi Khola meeting each other. While returning back towards the road we even had nice food to make the trip more memorable.

the track is worth more then the cave itself. Make sure to take plenty water and some rations if you plan to hike also back up to bandipur as it does take energy and time.
No need for guide, locals you pass along can point you and there really is only one real path towards the cave. Cave safety and local guide are not soo brilliant. Just take a bit care and do not wear yor nice whites as you will get muddy.
