  Viewpoint over the gorge of the Waghore River
by MM212

At the top of the hill on the opposite (inner) bank of the Waghora River is a strategic viewpoint over the entire 30 caves of Ajanta. To get there, one must cross one of the two concrete bridges (near Caves 8 and 27) and walk uphill for another 20 minutes. Undoubtedly, the views from there are stunning and make the hike worthwhile, but I chose skip it in order to save my energy on the hot sunny day when I was in Ajanta. Seen in the attached photograph, on the top of the hill on the left hand side, is this very viewpoint.
