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.

Very impressive cave. Didn’t expect the cave to be so big. It is good day hike and back from Bandipur town to the cave. Or one can reach there after a short walk from Dumre. For Nepal it is a moderate hike but do keep in mind it takes some level of fitness to get there.

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.
