Not maintained by management, it is difficult to reach over there if you dont have your own vehicle. it is 7-8 km from sanjay gandhi national park. You will get Share Taxi / Bus for Kanheri caves. One should only visit if they have time left after exploring other part of National park. Not good place to visit along with... More

Monkeys near Kanheri Caves were more intersting than Caves itself. Guards at the entrance took our tickets back to sell it again. Not bad business huh! I think if we had a guide who could tell us about this place trip could be more interesting. But there were no guides in that place.

Near the National park in Borivali, these caves are full of scriptures and sculptures. It is a good family experience on a weekend and especially in the monsoons when it is lush gren

In Sanjay Gandhi National Park. the kanheri caves our situated after a ride of 6km. the best way to reach up is cycle but you can also go by bus, car or motor bikes. the caves are just amazing and will definitely give you peace of mind.

Visit it for sure. Near them there is Lion Safari - actually lions are old and not... More

Great caves with so huge and well planned. Total 110 caves with various painting. It is must visit attraction in mumbai. It is located in Sanjay Gandhi National Park. A detailed history and architectural information should be installed there.

Its not an easy ride though. Its uphill and it takes a lot to climb up by cycling. The caves are... More
