‪Cool caves‬
ינו׳ 2020 • עסקי
‪Really enjoyed my visit here. I spent around 2-3 hours here. (This included spending time watching the monkeys near the car park)
There's lots of caves. Suggest taking a photo of the plan as you walk in so you can refer back to it as you walk round.
Some of the caves are much and much alike but there's some stunning caves as you walk round. These have amazing images of buddah carved into the stone and large Pillars.
It's set on a hillside and will involve lots of steps. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes. Suggest having plenty of water with you.
At the top there's a good view across the national park.

‪If you decide between the Elefanta Caves and Kanheru Caves, I would recommend you the last ones. Great very interesting historic and religious site.‬

‪Great Half-day activity!‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪I loved going to see the Kanheri caves while I was in Mumbai. It's amazing to see the way that they carved the caves into the side of the cliffs. I decided to go on my own & do the biking trip, but I didn't get a ton of the history while I was there. I would recommend getting a tour guide to go with you, because it's clear this place is full of fascinating information!‬

‪Great mix of Greenery and History‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪it is located in SGNP in Borivali. Easily accessible through Buses and Rickshaws. It is about 5-6 kms from the main gate and you can either take your own vehicle or local govt. bus. There about 107 clusters of caves of various sizes. They have different formats where some are plane square rooms with gates and then there are some with elaborate sculptures. Govt has tried to get the caves to be in best shape as much as it can. If you climb high enough , you'll get birds eye view of the city.‬

‪Divine Experience‬
פבר׳ 2020 • חברים
‪Its a Heaven in the city. An uphill climb which takes you to the top most point of mumbai giving a spectacular view of the city high rise along with the forest. Sitting in the beautiful caves built centuries back still gives you a divine experience away from the mad rush of everyday city life. A trip atleast twice a month is a must to get fresh pure oxygen for the mind and soul.‬

‪Excellent historical site of Budhist Statues‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪I visited by car. You enter from the gate of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park and drive 6km inside to reach the caves. There is adequate parking inside. There are several caves and you have to climb steps to reach all the caves. Some of the caves have statues and there is one cave which contains two large statues of Budha. If you like historical sites then you will enjoy the visit.
I use a walking stick and I held the rails to climb the steps.
There is a small cafe which sells sodas and some snacks. Be careful of the monkeys who snatched my bag of crisps and soda as soon as I placed them on the table!‬

‪Can't miss it for anything‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪Kanheri caves in Sanjay Gandhi National park is a hidden gem; within the city limits of Mumbai. Extraordinary vegetation and clean environment.
There are many activities (Lion/Tiger Safaris, Forest trails, Toy train etc etc.) that one could do here. However a day may not be enough if you want to do all. So prioritize.

One could take a car or rent a bike inside the entrance gate. There have been some recent rate hikes, but they all seem reasonable, looking at the improved upkeep and cleanliness of the place and also a lot of new infrastructure being put in.

1. Kanheri caves reside in midst of this vast forest. You need a separate ticket for this at nominal cost. The caves are much more cleaner now and securely locked up during off hours. There are new railings put in and a new complex coming up with public utilities and cafeteria etc.

2. It is wise to be there early to beat the sun and heat. Carry water a snacks along. Wear comfortable sports shoes and clothes.

3. It would be always a good idea to read up a bit about the caves and make a few notes before; like we did. This will make things easier to spot and one would not roam about aimlessly. Afterall there are 109 caves scattered over a wide area. The caves otherwise look the same, so its best to know the background and nuances a bit.

4. The caves are largely ‘Viharas” (Buddhist Monastery) and are stone cut, more than 2200 years old. The rocks are black basaltic.

5. Caves 1, 2, 3 (Chaitya hall with a large stupa, similar to Karla caves but smaller), 4 are notably the most talked about and interesting. So are 5 and 6 (Water cistern), 11 (Darbar hall), 34 (has an unfinished paining of Buddha on the ceiling), 41, 67, 81, 90. Cave 41 has a unique sculpture of Buddha with several small heads over the main head.

6. You will find inscriptions at various places in 3 different ancient scripts: Brahmi, Devanagari and Pahlavi.

7. Once you are done with the caves, don’t forget to climb on the topmost part of the caves to take a panoramic view of the forest and farther into the city, almost upto Powai. Beautiful sight.

8. On the way back, there is a small canteen for cold drinks and snacks. Further down you have fruit shops too. Beware of the monkeys who are all to eager to partake your food.

Highly recommended trek anytime of the year but mostly winter months or early morning in summers. Monsoons are also great if you are careful and avoid slippery tracks.‬

‪Good picnic spot‬
נוב׳ 2019
‪Located amidst thick forest, this place is a good picnic spot in Mumbai and a good place to spend your day (entire day). The caves are vast and portray the craftsmanship of those of made them. On reaching the top spot near the caves, you would be surprised to see the natural treasure Mumbai possesses. If you don't have a personal car, you can also take an Ola or Uber inside the forest to the caves. The local cars operating at the gate are not recommended and are expensive.‬

‪-It is best to come early in the morning if you want to beat the crowds

-If you are travelling in the summer months, do not forget a proper hat and sunscreen

-Beware of the monkeys that sit along the entrance walls and might snatch food if you are carrying it in your hands

-Wear comfortable shoes and avoid wearing heels or beach slippers

-If you are travelling during the winter months, do not forget a raincoat

-There is a restaurant at the top where you can buy food and water

-There is a small entry fee that you have to pay in order to enter the cave complex

-Although there are no strict rules but it is a place of great religious importance for the Buddhists and therefore the sanctity of the place must be maintained at all times‬
