Babaji Cave – How to Reach


I would like to give information on how to reach the Babaji cave, based on my experiences.

How did I go? ( I mean the route)

I started from Rishikesh to Haridwar by Road. From Haridwar(HW) night train(00.05a.m) to Kathgodam(KGM) ( Train No. & Name: 4120/DDN KGM EXPRESS) it reaches next day morning 7.30 a.m.

From Kathgodam, I took an taxi(ALTO) and went via Ranikhet – Dwarahat-Yogada Satsanga Society Ashram-Dunagiri hill(this is the place where the cave is located). It took max 4.30 hrs from kathgodam to the YSS ashram.

How can one go:

Route No.1. assuming base station as Delhi

Delhi to Kathgodam via train(close to 290 kms) and if you want to rest you can stay at Kathgodam and start the next day.
From kathgodam to Ranikhet(91kms) and from Ranikhet to Dwarahat(50 kms) and from Dwarahat to Dunagiri(20kms) by road.

Route No.2
From Delhi to Ranikhet (335kms) by Bus. However, not sure of the roads as to how it looks. One need to check prior to start with army or locals whether road is open for travel

Route No.3 
Base station Haridwar
Haridwar to Rishikesh(30kms), from Rishikesh via srinagar, karnaprayag to Dwarahat( 285kms), the journey is through the road but on the mountains.

Thanks everyone for your time 🙂

    I’d like find how to go to Hazrat Baba Farid Ganjshakar that I think is in Delhi.
    Once Swami Veda Barathi told us in La Verna that there was a hole in La Verna (in Italy where lives Saint Francisco) and also in a cave in Delhi. I saw the first in La Verna… and I’ll be in Delhi for one day and I would like go there. My tutor told me that it is Baba Fareed’s cave.
    Could you give me an advice? Thank you Mariateresa
