At the far end of the Borivali National park is the Kanheri caves. One food stall available outside the cave. Caves in Mumbai was a nice change

This place is one of the most awesome weekend getway within Mumbai city limits. Specially during the rains this place is full of greenery and small waterfalls. Perfect place to trek and have a day picnic.

Go to Sanjay Gandhi National Park for some oxygen for your lungs. Then drive (or better still, walk or cycle) to Kanheri caves for a quick lesson in history, all the while cooling your eyes with the greenery on the way. Monsoon is probably the best time to visit. You'll also be treated to some impromptu waterfalls at the caves!... More

We took a group of kids from our NGO for this trip. The caves are clean. They appreciated the opportunity to visit the caves. Children below 15 are free. at the caves. We had to pay for entrance to borivali national partk. So it was very economical. Toilets are a problem. we had carried our own food.

One of the very old cave carvings still present here. A good place for a day's trip for family or friends who are not from Mumbai. This place is a good getaway from mumbai. Avoid summer afternoons. can be really hot.

Close to the Borivali National Park the caves are reached via a beautiful drive through the greens, a little hilly road going up to the hills. The caves are beautifully carved out of a big stone having wonderful sculptures of the ancient times. Best way to reach is to take a bus close to the Borivali Railway station (East side)... More

Coming from Canada my friends insisted on showing me what they called a "World Class" entertainment park. While the park has the land mass going for it the couple of let downs were: 1. the staff attitude was a hit and miss. Some extremely friendly while others were non committed to their job. 2. The ride Salimgarh had stopped for... More

The ancient (2100 years old) buddhist viharas carved out of basalt rock are impressive, with remnants of beautiful stone carvings. Definitely worth a visit. Visitors arriving by taxi at the park entrance will first encounter the "there is no bus for the next two hours" scam (by an official looking attendant) and pay dearly for a rickety 15 minute ride...
