Visiting any UNESCO World Heritage Site, is always on to-do-lists for travelers and they want to convert them to 'completed' list ASAP, always. Tripanians too did the same, and we planned one-day trip to Ellora Caves, which is 255.5 KM from Pune. Generally, folks prefer to cover both Ajanta & Ellora Caves together but we wanted the visit & drive both to be justified and we confined it to only Ellora Caves.
Tripanians packed our pouches and followed the itinerary that, starting from Pune early morning, visit caves and other on the way sites by late afternoon, grab an amazing dinner at Dhabas, and back homes. Short and simple, one-day trip.
We started from Pune, quite early, around 5am and decided to have breakfast on the way. We all gathered at a common tea point and started journey from there, with favorite playlists on, some snacks loaded, loads of chatting and in some time, we welcomed the beautiful sunrise.
: This road trip/outing is extremely family friendly (accompanying kids) therefore; people can always enjoy such short trips with kids and families too.
