Our 2017 resolution has been to visit one new Indian state per year as most of our trips have been around South India as a family. Hence after we covered Goa, came the turn of Maharashtra. We zeroed down on Ajanta and Ellora caves and added Mumbai in. We were a group of 8 people with 4 adults and 4 kids. There are direct flights from Bangalore to Aurangabad (where caves are located), but we chose to stop over in Mumbai and do some sight seeing and shopping. Another option could be to go via Pune.
