Description

The Manjushree Gufa (Manjushree Cave) is maintained by the Jal Binayak Community Forest Users' Group. The cave system has three entrances, called Manjushree Gufa, Bagh Gufa and Naya Gufa. Tours are offered through any of the three entrances, and there are altogether five different tours. The tours are said to be show cave tours, but much of the cave requires stooping and crawling, so you should expect a really rough show cave.
