Elephanta Caves on Elephanta Island is one of the well known tourist destinations around Mumbai.

However, I decided to visit the island to try something different – I took my mountain bike there… to my pleasant surprise, I found a wonderful cycling route that circles the island along the shore and at the end, climbs up the hill to the caves.

Then even better, there is a short but steep climb uphill to a pair of cannons… then the downhill ride was a completely unexpected bonus!
