And no one is there to stop them. the spot starts from SG... More

Kanheri caves is part of the SG national park in Borivali, Mumbai. Compared to the magnificent Ajanta and Elora, Kanheri is very small though interesting for those who are visiting for the first time. Can avoid unless kids are keen for this

Easily accessible from borivali station, you can use local bus to reach kanheri caves. Otherwise people cherish walk in jungle.

the kanheri caves first of all very dark and nothing can be explored around. secondly there is risk of wildlife. third there are many mosquitoes and nothing other than the monkeys and the waste material of the animals. i would strongly not suggest anybody visit here.
