A visit to the caves is (in our view) an essential part of a visit to the National Park. We were there in the monsoons so the ground was slippery with mud and "moss" - be careful. There are also a lot of monkeys that are very interested if you have any food :) Best not to take any -... More

This is very good place which have ancient sculptures carved on mountains. You will find so many caves in it. During monsoon it is overcrowded; specially during weekends. As this is the only place left with greenery in Mumbai. Suggestion & Request- Do not litter the place and avoid feeding monkeys.

Kanheri Caves is located about 6kms inside from the main entrance of Sanjay Gandhi National Park. If you've visited SGNP and haven't been to Kanheri Caves, you haven't seen SGNP. These are caves and sculptures carved out of rocks tremendously influenced by Buddhist culture. It is an amazing treat to see for historians. You can reach here through all means... More

Decent place to visit, but advisable to come in your own vehicle and not rely on buses. Buses are super crowded and drop you 2 kms away from the caves.
