Elephanta Island - Caves & Rock Carvings. How to narrate the experience. So here goes a little account of the trip.
First - A 35 km taxi ride ending in verbal fight with the taxi driver. Reached Gateway of India
Second - An hour long steamer ride in the middle of the day. View of the Mumbai coastline and oil tankers. Reached the island.
Third - A 5 minute ride on the toy train. Reached the steps of the cave.
Fourth - A 15 minute climb up the hill. The path shaded by various curio-shops and monkeys all around. Temperatures in the late 30's (degree C).
And finally reaching the cave and geting to see...
All the journey hardships forgotten. It had been worth everything. Some more pictures of the place.
And as a bonus on the way back as the sun went down, managing to click the Mumbai picture
