Kanheri Caves in Boravili National park are a gem hidden in the urban jungle. This place is best to visit in monsoons as the surroundings come to life and so do the waterfalls. Your vehicle can go right up to the foothills for the caves which is way inside after you have crossed the national park entrance. The caves seem... More

It is an amazing experience just to visit Asia, but when you take the time to go to some of the profound ancient sites that really have you standing there and staring at them in awe, it's truly a special feeling. This is a place that is absolutely worth seeing for sure. You'll want to have either a local guide,... More

Over a 100 caves are present here- some are pretty basic monk residences, and some have more work done in them. Nice hike from the entry point to see all the caves- the view from the top is also good

I was stunned to see the hundreds of Buddhist caves, but most especially the carvings that looked to have their origins in Thailand, Mexico, Egypt, Bamiyan, and other places. It connects many experiences. Beautiful to walk here.

The kanheri Caves are made of rock cut monuments that are located in Borivali on outskirts of Mumbai. Located within the forests of the sanjay gandhi national park, 7 km from Borivali Station. Tourists can enter after 9:00 a.m.

This place is really good. You enter a sense of calm once there. It was a much needed break from city life.

Having stayed over 10 years in Mumbai, we had only heard of Kanheri Caves and the National Park but never visited. Got a chance to visit with my office colleagues for an outdoor excursion trip and was blown by the experience ! The place is bustling with cyclists and early morning walkers and visitors also have the option to rent... More
