Once you have landed at Elephant Island you can either walk down the jetty or catch the small tourist train, Either way you have to pay a 5 rupee village tax to gain entry to the Island. Then once at the end of the jetty there is a set of steps leading up to the Rock Temples, Here Really Lazy people are transported up these steps in Sedan Chairs !!
Once at the top of the steps you have to pay another 250 rupee to gain access to the Rock Temples. We were somewhat surprised by this as the wording on our boat ticket suggested that it included the entrance fees to the Rock Temples But This was Not the case !!
