Thank you for your kind words! Those were my thoughts exactly when I went there after all these years! "Ghar ki murgi daal barabar"!

Oh yes, I had been to Chinchoti many years ago during the monsoons and I was blown away by the beauty. I had a LOT of fun at the water falls. Thanks for reminding, that gets added to my To Do list!

You have shared good information about Kanheri caves. Also thank you for my reference in the opening post.

By the way, if you would have walked a little up the Kanheri caves, there is a point from where you can literally see entire landscape of western Mumbai right from Versova to Gorai islands. Also on the other side you can see high rises of Powai & Vihar & Powai lakes.
Thank you for the encouraging words, Jignesh!

I missed the view you are referring to! Next time, for sure!

+1 to that. As it is, we as a society are moving away from nature and our culture. I don't know why our schools are also contributing to this!

Nowadays, I am not sure if kids get taken to such historical places for school trips any more! I guess they get taken to more 'upmarket' places, if you know what I mean!

Jignesh Sir, I am aware of that spot which you are referring to and its a beautiful view of the Powai lake from there.

OT- Sorry to go off-topic but these days I am quite shocked when I listen to the kinds of trips ICSE,CBSE,IG,IB board schools take their students to. Eg. Gokuldham school, Ryan International are taking their students to NASA (US), the trip costing 2.5 lacs.
And I wonder what would these kids even understand when they visit NASA. In 2.5 lacs 2 people can comfortably make the trip with many more places to visit alongwith nasa..

Staying right next to the entrance of SGNP and have not visited Kanheri in the last 15 years atleast.

This is an oasis in the wide concrete desert of Bombay. (I still call her that).

Your TL has inspired me to do a walk to the caves.
