This place is located in Borivali. One can drive 6-7 kms to the base of the caves. However car parking space turns out to be limited on weekends. In monsoon one finds a lot of greenery around with a few waterfalls. These Buddhist caves are 2000 years old. Though there are more than 100 caves, 8-10 of them are considered... More

We went with a tour guide who was great. Not for anyone who isn't reasonably fit. There are more than 100 caves to visit here and quite honestly you would not want to visit them all!

I visited those caves during monsoon period ...that day it was raining a lot so I could't visit them fully because it was too slippy.. on the other hand there were nice waterfalls ...

If you visit Borivali, Visit Sanjay Gandhi National park and the KANHERI CAVES inside the park. You must have a vehicle( Car/ Taxi/ 2 wheeler) to travel inside the park which is permitted through purchase of entry ticket. A good place to visit.
