Caves are quite old and a good visit but all are the same so if you visit 4-5 you can skip the rest.

This area is huge! Bring water when it's hot since you will be walking and climbing a lot. Most people stuck to the beginning area but if you keep going to the rest of the caves there are more photo ops and cool areas to climb. There are also monkeys around that will grab food out of your hand so... More

Kanheri caves are one of the oldest and largest group of Buddhist caves in the world! An ancient legacy on incredible India that must not be missed! Go in monsoon to enjoy the greenery of the hills, go in winter to explore higher caves from a historical point of view.

The experience is of a WEEKEND and Holidays. Kanheri caves is at its best during monsoon... the waterfalls, greenery is really good worth going. The overall management by Sanjay Gandhi National Park was good. They had volunteers posted at regular intervals to guide and maintain discipline. It was really good to see girls group going alone till Kanheri caves. The... More

This is one of the finest and most serene places you'd visit in the financial capital of India. Kanheri Caves, located inside Sanjay Gandhi National Park are a set of Buddhist sculptured caves, built centuries ago. The art and history surrounding these sculptures are truly phenomenal, very much like the Elephanta caves. The place is very peaceful and calm- no... More
