We woke up with a lot of dreams about our day, it is in our days to make the most of it. Like others we also woke the second day in Mumbai with hope of seeing new things. So we thought of visiting Elephanta caves that day. So after refreshing up and having breakfast, we went to get our tickets for reaching the place. We got the deluxe ticket (as they call it), at paying some extra money then planned.
After waiting for 30 minutes we got into the boat that will take us to the caves. We heard form the sources that it will take an hour to reach there, but it actually took 2 hours to reach there. We reached there at around 11 AM in the morning and we got the ticket for entering the entered the caves which is a little above the hill. The climate was so hot making it difficult for reaching the cave.
My friend initially gave up is will to reach there, after convincing him for 10 mins, we reached the caves. It was worth spending our time. It consists of five caves. We spent around 2 hours. While returning they dropped at a port from where we have no idea how to reach Gateway of India. After speaking to some peoples nearby we came to know that we have to travel for another 30 mins to reach our place.
We had our lunch in a hotel near the port and got into an shared cab. We reached Gateway around 4:30 PM. For me, it is a new experience but for my friend it was a different thing. He has completely wasted a day of attending the movie festival by travelling with me to caves. After having a short tea break we went to attend the festival.
We stayed there for 3 hours till 8 PM. After that we came back to our room and had a bath and went for dinner. The dinner was the most beautiful thing happened to us on that day. It was a worthy dinner after spending the day completely roaming. We end the day with a delicious dinner.
