  • Treck to kondane cave is very simple. Better carry your snacks and water , you will not find any. Stupa is in dilapidated state, but still prove glory of history.
  • Good waterfall during monsoon. Less crowded compared to Bhivpuri waterfall that are full of muggers. Can take family. Car can go till entrance of the trek point.
  • Good place to take rest ,halfway to the rajmaachi ...cave carved out of rock..nice carvings on rock...
  • This place is a perfect example of a place where the journey is better than the destination. Visited this place on decent from Rajmachi. The hike is amazing. The caves once maintained properly was full of rock slabs when we visited in June 17, probably for maintenance work planned. There was a small waterfall (start of monsoon) which is great to cool down when hiking in the sun.
  • Best place to visit in Monsoon to enjoy spectacular views, waterfall, caves also good quite place in other season.This is a good place for an easy trek to caves its on route to Rajmachi Trek. To get here by other than private vehicle or to reach by public transport , Option A: 1. Reach Karjat by train. 2. From Karjat station get auto rickshaw for Shreeram Bridge. Usually 10rs. Per head 3. Get a passenger auto rickshaw from there (tum-tum/ big size usually 10 seater) for 'Kondivade' village. Usually 20 rs. per head 4. From Kondivade you can go to Kondane Caves on foot to enjoy an simple easy and good trek, enjoying scenaries, river, etc. This option is suggested to those who wish to enjoy the beautiful views of nature as this place and route offers some spectacular views. Option B: Otherwise, you can also get a direct auto rickshaw from Karjat station or Shreeram bridge to Kondane Caves, its costs 250-300 rs. for the ride (you can bargain for the same and this is cost for the one way ride not per head). They will drop you near the trail to caves till the vehicle accessible road. I would suggest getting driver's number so as to while returning you can call him to pick you up since there are no Auto rickshaws near this point and you might have to walk back to Kondivade village to get the transport. If you are looking for enjoying views and spending time while trekking you can use option A, its also cost effective. Or you can use option B and get there directly you might not be able to stop in between to enjoy other scenaries on the route but its suggested for those who wish to get there quickly and go directly to the caves.
