The Elephanta Caves has recently been given a face lift. The caves are nice and the journey by boat is also great. You can travel to elephanta from ferry Wharf or from Gate way of India. You can spend half a day in the island....More
Nice place to be in for a change. From mumbai 30 to 45 minutes via boat depending on speed. Approx INR 200.00 for return journey. Mini train is there costing 15 to 20 rs. Depends on availability. Good for couple n family. Surrounded by Arabian...More
Elephanta caves is an experience that everyone visiting Bombay should take in. It is fun to hop onto a boat and travel for about an hour to get to Elephanta islands. Many unique birds etc. can be seen along the way. The caves themselves are...More
We are always fascinated by archaeological sites and this is an interesting one. A bit disappointing that you have to take an extremely slow, decrepit boat to get there, then flight through hundreds of hawkers, climb 150+ stairs and survive an assault of some pretty...More
Straight off the boat was met by starving/crippled dogs which both tourists and locals were purposely standing on, kicking and hitting with sticks. Everywhere we saw was covered in litter and not to forget the scammer that kept trying to sell us a tour straight...More
Had to scramble over one ferry to get to another but interesting to see the ghats: people washing self and clothes in river. Then toy train to the steps...... many, to get up to the Unesco World Heritage site. Steps have stalls either side so...More
Visited Elephanta island today with high expectations. After an hour ferry journey past numerous oil rigs we were greeted to the island by the locals as well as tourists kicking and beating dogs. The island is overrun with hundreds of starving dogs who are abused...More

hello, the steps are covered with stalls on both side so there is no chance of vertigo attack, I myself suffer from the same and have asthma. Once you reach the caves it's plain land and rocky where you can very comfortably walk or stroll. Caves 1 and 2 is worth the visit rest you might skip. water and light food is available at the entry point and there is also a restaurant where you can have lunch and rest, although the washroom was very dirty when i visit so i skipped that.
Happy a great visit, its worth all the time and patience.

Yes, I hired a local guide when I arrived on Elephanta Island, who was very knowledgeable & very nice. I was a solo traveler at the time, but I’m sure that he would most likely handle a small group. His name was Madu... More

The driver that I used was Mohan Chand
I hope that they are able to help you.
