Sunday, 7am, we woke up. After a quick shower and breakfast we went to vashi´s train station by tuk-tuk 60(rupee). There we took the train to Mumbai CST on plattform 4 (30rp per person return tickect).
We arrived after 1h of an amazing experience. At 11h we arrived near gateway of India where we took the boat to elefanta island, the boat trip is amazing with a beatifull view of the taj mahal hotel and the gateway itself, after half na hour we are in the middle of the way and we only see hundreds of boats and cargos around us.
The island itself is really nice, and the small markets till the top are great and cheap, (Just try to not eat anything that doesnt look good...).
When we arrived to the top of the hill first big desapointment...250 rp for tourists and 50rp for indians to see the caves... after we paid we walk through the first cave and second disapointment, the cave is surely a world heritage but overcrowded and with a poor state of conservation, a lot of garbage and people always ready to scam you for some rupees.
Overhall a really good adventure, its a great trip to do while in Mumbai, but think twice before paying 250 rp to see nothing extraordinary...you can always go just for the island, and spend a good time around or trying one of the restaurants up the hill! (goodluck)
