A visit worth climbing

The place is really nice with ancient Buddhist carvings. The climb up is reasonable and you get a good view of nashik city.

this is on top of the hill. You have to climb like 1-2 km's. thereafter you get to historian architecture sculptures. The story of Pandavas and sita ma. best time to go in the morning. you can see the entire city from the top. photography is allowed.

5000 years old caves with amazing history. Nice place for people who like meditating. about 200 steps to get there but worth it. We get a very nice view of Nasik city from here.

Ancient caves located near Nashik (Pathardi Phata area) alongside Mumbai-Nashik expressway. It involves a climb of about 30 mins to reach the top. Very beautiful view of Nashik from the top

This takes you back to the time of Lord Buddha. Entry charges are Rs. 5/- for Locals and Rs. 100/- for Foreigners. The caves are numbered, but the significance is not explained anywhere. A good 360 degree view of Nasik city is visible from this place. I wouldn't say its a must visit place in Nasik...but it's not bad...

These caves are quite ancient ones with Buddhist statues and cravings. One can complete a trek and get down within an hour or so. They also provide scenic view of the city

It is a little place compared to the Ellora and Ajanta caves, but is worth visiting while you are in Nashik. The climb to the caves is a long walk.

Visited this place on a Sunday afternoon in December. There was a decent crowd, but nothing that would be bothersome. The most strenuous part was the walk up the caves and I would recommend wearing flats or sneakers for comfort. Also we started sweating on a winter afternoon, so summers will be very oppressive to climb in that heat,specially afternoons.... More

its a beautiful place. 202 steps on hill. bit difficult to climb particularly for people who have crossed age of 40 yrs. But once you reach you forget all. keep adequate time to spend there. just relax. very peaceful.

A well maintained path leads up to the caves (make sure you have sensible shoes on and plenty of water as it's a bit of a climb!) the caves are amazing and it cost 100 rupees to get in (foreigner price, Indians get in for 5 rupees). Has some great views over Nashik.
