Basic cave structures at the top of the hills, try going when there is good light as the caves are dark and not much can be seen. If you love hiking the climb will be worth it..Also you can see entire of Nashik from the top which is just lovely.

A well preserved sight after a steep climb up. Quite easy to access. The view from the top of surrounding city of Nashik is nice. Worth going if the weather permits and best to be there early in the morning just after 8pm to avoid the crowds. They sell drinks and snacks at the entrance before the climb up.
