Enter Kanheri Caves to explore an underground world of rock-cut monuments and natural works of art. Walk through some of dozens of basaltic rock caves that lie hidden within the forest of Sanjay Gandhi National Park. As you go deeper, examine traces of Buddhist art and Indian culture, since numerous unfinished paintings decorate the moist walls. Outside you'll find plenty of picnic spots surrounded by streams and small waterfalls.
