It's a known place in Rishikesh but few people go there as it is a peaceful area. Nearby maa Ganga is flowing. Can spend1-2 hours easily

Imagine witnessing the place where Guru of Lord Rama, Seer Vashistha meditated along with his wife. Vashistha Gufa is a must visit place if you are interested in Indian mythology. The cave is well preserved and well maintained. Please dont forget to sit there and meditate and feel the aura of the place. Tip: You will have to descent down and climb back from main road so wear good shoes although the both descend and ascend is comfortable. River Ganges is further 100-150 meters from cave and the way is filled with sand and rocks but it is enjoyable. You will get spectacular views from Gufa and upon reaching river, you can enjoy bathing as well. Please remember there are no changing rooms as it is pure pristine natural bank of river. Go and witness a piece of ancient history Nitin

It is a meditative den, small, dark, and not really something I would want to see. One can go if they like caves and den. But there is a quiet beach, 10 mins walk from there. That is an amazing place to camp, click pictures, and enjoy silence.
