Eco Cave Gardens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eco Cave Garden is a cluster of natural rocky caves which have been developed into a garden. This destination is gaining popularity of late due to its close proximity to the Nainital city, also commonly known as Mall Road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The garden is maintained by Nainital Tourism and is located in the Mallital area on the Kaladungi Road. The garden offers a majestic view of 6 caves formed in the shape of animals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is a great adventure for children to experience the natural-like habitat of various animals first-hand. A musical fountain enhances the beauty of the place with audio and visual effects. The garden is lit with old-school petroleum lamps to keep the authenticity of the place. The popular caves are Panther Cave, Tiger Cave, Bat Cave, Apes Cave, and Flying fox Cave. Along with caves throughout the pathway, there are hanging gardens which add to its beauty - Going through the caves is an experience which you would not want to miss.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Currently, the cave is maintained by the Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam (KMVN), which has fairly decorated the caves with effigies of rural men and women. It is an excellent example of nature-and-man’s combined effort. Also, since it depicts the wildlife habitat of the Kumaon region, it holds a great deal of educational and informative significance.
