This train was suitable to my time schedule. We travelled in AC chair car. The seats were not much comfortable. The journey is took 7 hours instead of scheduled time but it was okay. The scenery from the train was good. You have to pay for the food on the go so be prepared ahead. Toilets were clean.

Aurangabad has many historic places that you should visit. Any History lover or Buddha, Shiva Devotee should visit this place. I visited the place in August which is a off season for tourists. The season to visit is from October to May.

The place is famous for Ajanta - Ellora caves,...more »

The road from Mumbai to Aurangabad is not very great - especially, there were constructions happening at many places - so the path was diverted through small roads. Also, there aren't good restaurants on the way! There is a good restaurant outside Elora Caves. Can see lot of cotton, onion farms on the way! We stopped by at a farm and the uncle-aunt who owned the farm gave us onion, tomato, coriander, in a very cheap rate and also with lots of love! Do visit these farms and experience true human relationships!

Elora is basically divided into 3 parts Hindu caves, Buddhist caves & Jain caves. The Hindu & Buddhist caves are nearby. The Jain caves are at a little far off.

Started our journey with the most famous cave in Ellora Cave No. 16 -The Kailasa Temple. Had read lots about it on internet...more »

I am a Gold Jet Privilege Member. This airline always is my first choice to travel by air. Very good in cabin crew and mostly flights are on time. They provide good lounge facility to the guests. A one of the best award scheme for their frequent fliers.

The only convenient flight is in the early evening, but this is by ATR Aircraft with all its limitations of space. Pleasant flight with excellent in-flight service. Familiar problem of complete lack of lounge facilities at Mumbai Airport since boarding is from ground floor.

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.
