Ajant Caves : - We were stayed in the hotel Ginger - situated in the aurangabad city. Very nice food and staying facilities are available. You need to take around 350 steps - to reach the Ajanta caves(Last cave- Do not miss this last cave). There are around 30 caves which are beautiful and example of ancient architecture and carving. This monsoon season it is really awesome to visit the caves and climbing the short hills. Also note that from Aurangabad city - it will take around 3 hours car drive to reach Ajanta caves. Also you need to be careful with the stones as it is sleepary ROCK. You required around 2-3 hour time if you explore the caves fully. So leaving early from Aurangabad is advisable.

It was the memorable experience as monsoon season going on and rain is everywhere.
