Went on a Sunday afternoon around 430 pm and had a good short visit. There are many caves to see. The distance from the main gate is quite far so either take the bus or a private taxi which requires a ticket for the taxi...More

A nice place to visit during light monsoon season. Never visit during summers. Good for visiting with friends in group.

This place is very close to and must visit cultural site. When you visit make sure return journey arrangements. We visited using Uber but when you enter park no signals. So you can get lost. Very valuable for Buddhists but no religious activities. People use...More

Visited Kanheri caves few months ago during a hiking trip. There is a lot of walking to do, so be ready with your sports shoes. Also, the views and architecture are really beautiful and worth a visit.

I last visited Kanheri caves a couple of years ago but am summarising my previous visits. These are a series of caves, numbered, prehistoric and made by Buddhist monks. Being frequented by animals i think it has a particular smell emanating from them and it...More

This is must see in Mumbai if you have the slightest interest in history and sculpture. This place is hidden in the hill in the SGNP. You must see the main caves which are near the entrance. Lookout for the underground tanks created to store...More

The main cave is just 30 meters from the entrance where there are guards posted. In terms of seclusion, there are many visitors and people go with families. I don't think it would be a problem for a lone woman.

Nice place during Monsoon. It will be slippery. Should have good shoes and more careful. Average fit person can visit this place

We took Ola. I believe the Kanaheri caves which are inside Sanjay Gandhi N P are opened all the time. There is a bus inside the park which can take you to the caves themselves.
