Hop on a boat ride to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site!

Although this isn’t the most popular thing to see in Mumbai, some people do enjoy visiting this collection of cave temples predominantly dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. The trip involves a 1 hour each way boat ride from the Gateway of India

**Please note that we don’t actually run this tour because our tour guides are not allowed in the cave complex. To do a guided tour, you have to use a local tour guide from Elephanta; it’s also very possible to visit the caves at your own pace with no guide.

However, we can still assist you in one of two different ways:

  1. You contact us and we give you the contact details of some of the local guides from Elephanta who you can contact directly (we won’t charge you anything), OR
  2. You contact us and we will provide you with an escort – almost certainly a young man or woman from the Dharavi community – who will accompany you to Elephanta. Their English is not as good as that of our tour guides, but enough for some basic communication. You will need to pay for all of your costs whether you want to use a local guide or not, and we will charge you an additional nominal amount of INR 1,000 total for your group.

The caves are closed on Mondays
