The journey to the Caves begins at the Gateway of India by the Taj Hotel. It is a short and relaxing boat ride to the caves. Also known as Elaphante Island, once your reach the island, you can take a short ride on a small railway to the steps leading up to the caves. Be aware, there are about 100... More

One of the best place to be in heart of city. Try to be there early morning so that you can enjoy the place. Its a vast place so it will be a full day activity. Also carry some food and water (Though the place has some eating options.)

In entrance, some private car driver... More

The place doesnt seem like a typical Mumbai place inspite of being so close to the Western Express highway.. The National park seems to be a little boring but the caves are awesome. If you love history and architecture, this is a place that you have to visit. TIP: Leave early in the morning and try to reach the place... More
