Perhaps the only site within the city that would attract tourists who have interest in History, but the approach is not so good. A lot could have been done to improve the surroundings and the path that leads to the caves. The caves are said to be built before the birth of Christ and are carved out of rocks. Those who have visited Ajanta, Ellora caves near Aurangabad may find some resemblance to those caves and draw analogies. A downtrodden plaque at the entrance of the caves gives a brief insight into the history of the caves. The view of the Nashik city from the caves are panoramic and is very cool and refreshing.

The food is good especially the lasooni chicken tikka and the overall decor of the restaurant is superb and yet the establishment misses on a few crucial points. The temperature in the restaurant at 2.30 pm on 20th May was hot and uncomfortable with lots of flies. A house fly swimming in my wine glass was brought to the waiter's notice, on being nudged about the management"s policy to deal with such indoor occurrence my glass was replaced, well done!
The wine replaced without apologies was just 80 ml as much as what was in my glass with the insect in it. The management to demonstrate their attitude and willingness towards service could have at least replaced with a standard wine glass measure.
What was baffling was that the restaurant had run out of chilling ice and the bottles of white wine we had ordered were not chilled.
Favorite Dish: Lasooni chicken tikka

KK Travels near the airport offer a small minibus as well as a car if you wish to travel on your own. If you can contact them before you land here then it will be best to have a confirmation beforehand. The other option is the taxi from Dadar Station which is not so comfortable as it is a non airconditioned taxi and you have to share it with three other people. The fare is much less than the private operators or bookings done through travel agents. The train is the best option and cheapest too but then you have to go at the right time and book your tickets before you arrive here so that you have a confirmed e-ticket. You can travel by airconditioned chair car as well as sleeper coaches or even normal general class compartments on some of the trains that go to Nasik or beyond which is also not expensive at all.

Last year, Nashik was connected to Mumbai by a daily flight service provided by Air Deccan. The flight time is around 45 mts and the airfares are in the range of INR 1000-1400 per person. This is a no frills budget airlines. Very shortly, there will be a flight connection for Nagpur also.

This hill temple is commonly known as Sapt Shringad (Vani Devi) among local people. It is a highly venerated temple in this region. I found the ride to this temple the best part of the trip. The landscape is beautiful and traffic on the road is almost next to negligible. Hired cars/taxis are the best option and monsoon or winter is the best time to go. During the months of Jan-Apr, the road is kissed by vineyards and grapes are available in plentiful all along the way. The return trip will take around 4 hrs. The temple is around 70 KMs from Nashik, on the Nashik Kalwan state highway.

A trip to this Hill temple, more commonly known as Sapt Shringad (Vani) is best done during morning hours. Rented cars/private taxis are the best options and will charge around Rs. 800/- for a return trip from Nashik. The hill temple is located at the end of an arduous serpentine drive up the hill and the view from the top is splendid.
