These Beautiful Rock-Cut Caves Are Only An Hour And A Half Away From Mumbai

    Lonavala, Pune


    Bhaja Caves exudes a sense of tranquility and devotion, and it’s only one and a half hours away from Mumbai.

    What Makes It Awesome

    Cradled in the lap of nature, shaped by the hills themselves, rest the Bhaja Caves. Bhaja Caves, a set of 22 rock-cut caves, carved right out of the hills and comprising multiple stupas, are one of the most important Buddhist sites in Maharashtra. Falling on the way to the Lohagad fort trek, Bhaja Caves lie in one of the most natural places in Maharashtra.

    With an amazing view while you make the short climb to the caves themselves, as soon as you enter the caves, you will feel a sense of peace and unity with nature. Monsoon is the best time to explore this area, because of the multiple spectacular waterfalls that embroider the path to the caves and the caves themselves.


    With a getaway this close, you should definitely give Bhaja Caves a visit, if you want to escape to nature’s lap for a day. Best time to visit this place would be between July-September. Make sure you don’t miss out on Maoshi’s chai before embarking on to the short climb to the Caves. Have fun!
