Stop At: Elephanta Caves

The intricate rock carved temples of Elephanta Island are rich sculptural masterpieces much cherished by residents and tourists alike. Discover their wonders on a half-day tour from Mumbai led by an expert guide!

First, board a ferry for a 1-hour ride to Elephanta Island. Upon arrival we will switch to a toy train for 2 minutes. This is a fun and quirky way to travel and takes us right up to the climbing point leading to the entrance of the caves. The Temple can be reached by 693 steps. If you are feeling indulgent, you can be carried up the stairs on a wooden chair. This option costs an additional US$ 15.

The enigmatic image of Trimurthu Sadadiva cannot fail to impress as you pass through the cave entrance. Considered to be a masterpiece of Indian art, this colossal 20-foot image is simply awe-inspiring.

You'll have 1 hour to explore the caves, also seeing the sculpted images of Kalyansundara, Gangadhara and Ardhanriswara, so remember to bring a camera! Afterwards you will board the ferry again heading back to Mumbai where the tour will end.

Duration: 2 hour
