Mumbai-Aurangabad is almost 340 km distance, reasonable to drive by car. We drove via NH-3 and then on to Nagpur-Aurangabad Road. We drove during the monsoon and it was little difficult, especially in few patches where the roads are in pretty bad condition. We took many stopovers to rest and recuperate, eat, drink and relax. We arrived in Aurangabad within 7-8 hours! Many tolls on the way.

I boarded the train on 10th March, 2015 at 1400 at Dadar Terminal. The train was 5 minutes late in starting but reached Aurangabad 30 minutes earlier at 2000 hours. The journey was very interesting in the Air Conditioned Chair Car. The seats were improvised with sufficient space. The train halted at Thane, Kalyan, Igatpuri, Nashik Rd and Manmad only en-route. The 365 Km journey was completed in 6 hours. The catering in the train was excellent with frequent availability of snacks and coffee at the affordable rates. There is no lunch and dinner facility in the train due to the timings. The AC Chair Car was almost full. The views on the way covering the Western Ghats at Igat Puri, Nashik Road were very attractive.

We chose Jet because flight timings were convenient for us. Flight was on time and terminal 1 was good to spend time with my colleagues. Flight was of short duration so we did not take food on flight which was chargeable. We had lunch at Sahara Star Hotel before reaching the airport. Check-in and boarding was no problem at all.

We been to Aurangabad by car from Mumbai. Highway was good. The route was Mumbai-Kalyan-Nasik road-Sinnar-Shirdi Highway and then Mumbai Nagpur Highway via Aurangabad. Ajanta Caves is about 104 km from Aurangabad. One can go directly to Ajanta Caves if going by car bypassing Aurangabad which we did on our Day1. Ajanata caves required about 2 and a half hours to explore, little tiresome. Reach before 2.30 pm as it gets closed by 5.30 pm.

One more thing Ajanata Caves is closed on Monday and Ellora on Tuesday,so plan your holidays accordingly. One can also visit Shirdi, Shani Singnapur along Aurangabad. Minimum 4 full days will be required and three full days in Aurangabad and one day to cover Shirdi and Shani Shingnapur.

What could I say about a 6 hour journey. We are group of ten. We had lot of fun and masti through out the journey. We already had dinner so no idea about the food quality of the train. Toilets are ok. I have boarded this train 2 years back, nothing has changed. The train usually runs at correct time.
