DAY TRIPS AROUND MUMBAI, Mumbai: 54 reviews and 99 photos


For a few dollars you can have yourself carried in a Palanquin (sedan chair) up the steep stone staircase that leads to the entrance of the caves? or you can do as most, and walk it yourself, often stopping to catch your breath. No I didn't try it. It would have been fun, if not a little hair-raising, but I just couldn't do it. It seemed that no one else was brave enough or less self-concious to try it either when I was there.
