What to Bring

Ellora enjoys balmy temperatures year-round. The rainy season is from June to September (though many days are dry; the waterfalls are spectacular). Temps are usually in the 80sF/27+C in the daytime and 60sF/16+C at night; nights are cooler, November – January. In March – June, temps can rise to 100F/38C or so in the day, and may be in the upper 70sF (26+C) at night. This area attracts tourists from all over the world, but we recommend visitors dress conservatively to show respect for the local culture.

Travel Arrangements

For information about plane, train and bus schedules, we recommend

Bus to Aurangabad: We recommend the first-class “Shivneri” express commuter buses operated by Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation between major cities within the state. Look for a separate ticket line at the bus station and bright blue Volvo buses. The closest bus stop to us is “Baba Petrol Pump.”

Bus Aurangabad to Ellora: Numerous services run between Ellora and the Aurangabad Central Bus Station, but Maharashtra State Tourism Corporation (MTDC) is most reliable. We are located close to the MTDC bus parking area.

Trains to Aurangabad: The Aurangabad railway station has good connections to many cities, including morning and overnight express trains from Mumbai.

By Air to Aurangabad: The domestic airport (IXU) offers daily flights to and from many Indian cities. It is one to two hours away from us, depending on traffic.

Car Aurangabad to Ellora: A taxi will bring you here from
anywhere in Aurangabad, or you
may call to arrange hotel pickup in advance for a
reasonable fee. We have
two comfortable five-passenger cars, one a hybrid.
