Just Loved Kanheri Caves of Borivali Mumbai

Have you ever been to Mumbai, Maharashtra? If you haven't and are planning to, consider paying a visit to Kanheri Caves as well! These caves are located in Borivali suburb of Mumbai and are said to be 2400 years old.  In this article, I will post the info about how to reach Kanheri Caves. I will also share the video I made there and all the other info which will be handy for the tourists!

How to reach Kanheri Caves?

Kanheri caves are located inside Sanjay Gandhi National Park of Mumbai's suburban area Borivali. Auto rickshaws, BST buses and Mumbai local trains can easily get you there. However, the best way to reach is auto rickshaws if you are with your partner. 

If you are on budget, its highly advisable that you pick local buses that are easily available from Goregaon bus stand. 

Once you are inside the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, look for a taxi. As these caves are about 10 kms inside. The cost of the taxi is about Rs. 40-50 per passenger. 

After 20-30 minutes of ride, you reach the entry point of Kanheri Caves. To enter, you need to pay a small fee, after making the payment, take the slip. The security guys won't let you enter without the slip, make sure you don't forget to take the entry slip.

In my experience, the whole atmosphere around these caves is very calm and enjoyable. Anyone who wants to go away from the hectic traffic and fast life of busy Mumbai, this is the best place. I spent three months in Mumbai, didn't know about these caves before, only few weeks prior to journey back home I could go there.

Now what should you take along!

If you are going to these caves during Monsoon, make sure to take an umbrella or raincoat with you. Apart from that, you can visit the place without worrying much about other stuff you need to carry with you. 

Tea, vada pav, idli, Samosa are easily available inside. Though, if you are visiting with kids, make sure to take biscuits and snacks of their liking with you. Water bottles are also recommended as there are no taps I could find.
