Rudradhari Falls: The Hidden Waterfalls in Almora

the Rudradhari fall situated near Kausani village at a distance of approximate 10 Km from village. The best time to visit the Rudradhari Falls would be during the monsoon  or later May as per my experience. There is a beautiful trek of about 1.5KM.

The waterfall has a Shiv Temple adjacent to it. There are many Eateries before the trek but none on the way. The water is clean and cold.

This temple is inside a cave deep in the forest. The hike to the temple is a short yet lovely one, especially if you start very early in the morning. It would be great time during trekking to Mahdev Temple and charming with the hill beauty.

A must visit place and hiking is good if you enjoy not recommended form elderly people. Monsoon season is recommended as waterfall will be more voluminous.
