Sahasratra  Dhara,  laterally meaning, the  'thousand  fold  spring'  is situated  at a distance of 11 kms. from Dehra Dun.  The place makes  an  ideal picnic  spot and is of immense attraction to visitors.  The Baldi river and the caves provide a breathtaking view.

The water here has  a fall of about 9 metres and leaves an incrustation of lime of all its  touches. Particles  thus  accumulating  over the centuries have  formed  a  projecting ledge,  and a sort of cave, from the roof of which falls a  perpetual  shower. There  is also a sulphur spring in which visitors often take bath.  Its  water is said to cure skin infections and possess other medicinal properties
