Settled in the tranquil environs of Sanjay Gandhi National Park and encompassed by the Western Ghats, Kanheri Caves are a treat for history specialists, nature-lovers and harmony searchers.

What To Expect

Kanheri Caves
The Kanheri Caves are a group of caves and rock-cut monuments cut into a massive basalt outcrop in the forests of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, on the island of Salsette in the western outskirts of Mumbai, India. They contain Buddhist sculptures and relief carvings, paintings, and inscriptions, dating from the 1st century BCE to the 10th century CE. Kanheri comes from the Sanskrit Krishnagiri, which means black mountain.

Highly Recommend this Experience

We did a Kahneri Cave tour with Ganesh and had a remarkable time. His knowledge and presentation of information about the caves was phenomenal. The caves are a must-see. At the top, there is a breathtaking view of Mumbai, fantastic for panoramic photos. The hike is very mild, and a very nice opportunity to take in some nature amid the urban surrounding.

P.S., don't feed the monkeys. They tried to swipe an orange from us (and failed)
Great experience

Great experience with Arunbhai and Ganesh as guide. Well organised, caves are well worth a visit and so is the National park. Highly recommended!

Once again, I had the pleasure of using Linda Tours for my latest excursion in Mumbai. This time, I visited the Kanheri caves. Satish picked us up on time (10:00am) and found the quickest route to get us there. Mumbai traffic is heavy but we managed to make it there relatively quickly and safely. His knowledge of the caves and their history was very informative and the two hours spent there seemed to fly by.

Our day ended with a impromptu stop at a local bar/restaurant for a quick bite and we were back at the hotel by 4:30pm.

Thank you for a wonderful day.
Excellent caves tour

A truly enjoyable experience going with Dipen to the Kanheri Caves. Dipen was attentive, helpful and full of interesting knowledge not just about the caves themselves but also about Mumbai more broadly. Warmly recommended!
