If you have one day and you want to visit Dehradun then this article may help you.

How to reach : Best way to go to Dehraun is by your own car or you can also take a cab but this may be costly. One other way is taking a Volvo bus which goes from Delhi “Kashmiri gate” and “Gurgaon old bus station” if you travelling from Delhi NCR. I was travelling from Delhi. These will cost between 800-900 rs per person which is quite pocket friendly. You can leave in the night and can reach Dehradun by morning so these buses are perfect regarding your office or college timings. I have taken the bus of 8:00 pm from Gurgaon and reached Dehradun at 4:30 AM. You also have an option to choose flight from Delhi to Dehradun or from whichever city you are travelling.

A day in Dehradun :

After reaching Dehradun, you can go to the hotel and check-in as you must be tired.

Hotels : Hotels of Dehradun are very pocket friendly, you just have to choose the right area. I have booked hotel at prince chowk.

Where to eat : Prince chowk is heaven for food lovers specially for non-veg lovers. So it's time to take a small break and have some amazing breakfast in Dehradun. Foods in Dehradun is delicious and very pocket friendly. Believe me you will get yummy food in every range even there are lots of “Dhaba’s” where you can have yummy “Parathas..”. If you are non-veg lover, you are at the right place I guess. There are lots of pocket friendly hotel with absolute great taste.

Where to go : There are some good places which are must visit.

Robber's cave / Guchhupani : You will thank me after visiting this place. You can get the cabs from your hotel to reach here. You have to remove your shoes here and take the sleeper which are available on rent of just 10 rs and now you are ready to get into the cave. There are small shops which offers Maggi, tea, coffee, momos and some other snacks. At the time I entered into the cave I felt that this is worth to visit the place. There is a long cave with the water on the bottom everywhere. You have to walk in the water and sunlight from the top of it just makes it more beautiful. The walk in the cave is its beauty. You will be amazed by the beauty of the place.

Sahastradhara : I was very disappointed by this place as I have seen the beautiful pictures on google but it is not worth. Fall is beautiful but people have made it so dirty by throwing the garbage. Please don’t ruin the beauty of nature if what I will say to these people.

Dehradun Zoo : You will see the variety of animals here and this place is well maintained.You can see leopard, crocodile, monkeys, beautiful birds, peacock, dear and some other animals too. You can also have some foods from the food corner. Also there is one 3D show which is a must watch. They have aquarium in the zoo but that is up to you if you want to see that. Charges of zoo is 20-30 rupees and for 3D show its 50 rupees. They offer discounts if you are taking all 3 (zoo, aquarium and 3D show).
