For those who love to trek, this one is the most safe where your family can also enjoy. Both options are available like climbing on the hill or to take stair case till the caves. Above the cave area on top of the hill, there are no steps but still it is safe. The caves, few in number, are maintained... More

We had visited the Pandav leni caves in April 2007 & we visited them in august 2014 once again. Its a great place to visit if one appreciates the buddhist architechture. We loved climbing down the stariway & it was a great workout in the early morning.

A bit of a climb to reach, like most cave temples in India. But the caves themselves were very interesting and well-maintained. Being a white guy, I'm not subjected to racial profiling very often, but that happened here with the exponentially higher price of admission I had to pay. It wasn't so expensive that I'm going to go broke, but... More

On our visit to Nashik, we definitely opted to see Pandavleni Caves. Many people relate those caves with Mahabharat's Pandavs but they have nothing to do with it!! Anyway, from our hotel, which was only about 2 KM away, we reached here at about 10AM. First we were reluctant to go upstairs as there were about 250-300 stairs to climb... More

I would suggest this as must for all, as there is less crowd here and there is awesome view of the city from the top of the hill. The stone caves are remarkable historical relics. It nicely maintained by Archaeological Survey of India. It is a ticketed monument.
