if you use the advanced search engine and put in "mumbai hotel" you come up with this

EDIT: the link only seems to work for a short period of time. after that it shows "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." it seems not to be possible to link to more than one search results at a time. at least for me.
so, everyone will have to use the search engine by oneself

A search for "Mumbai" will throw up a lot of information on things to see and restaurants to visit.

You said "fly" to Nashik. Is there an air service between Mumbai and Nashik? Just out of curiosity, for how many days do you intend staying at Nashik and what do you plan to see there?
Whoever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to shop !

For a first time (or any time) it's not a bad idea to have an idea of what hotel you want to go to. Try also this site's hotel listings; I recently found http://www.lonelyplanet.com/travel_s...rvl_accomo.cfm to come up with good results as well. With any of these places you can try to make a telephone booking if they don't offer an online service; and anywhere in the world such bookings may never be 100% foolproof so keep some alternatives on hand.

Once you're there just settle in and ease into it. In Mumbai the popular backpacker's area is Colaba, so if you like some fellow travellers around you & the regular amenities that's the place to be. It's also got a lot of hotels so if your hotel of choice should fall through for some reason there'll be other choices. Bring a guidebook or buy a city guide there and pick out some places in the city to explore once you're starting to feel more comfortable, or save the exploring for your return there (assuming you fly out of there). Don't be surprised if India is a little overwhelming at first or even if you hate it for the first few days; give it some time, get out of that big city and start moving around, and like most people you may find that you start loving it.

Good luck & have fun with it. For just two days and a first two days at that I wouldn't wear yourself out by running around like a madman btw. Take it easy, sleep off your jetlag, make a couple of walks, sit back in some of the cafes and watch the world go by, stuff like that. And remember distances on a map always look smaller than they are in a place where you don't know your way around. A big city like Mumbai can really be more rewarding to explore when you return after having travelled around. All depends per person of course.

Yes, so I've noticed, you can't make a permalink out of the search results. Oh well.

Thanks for the reply. I wasn't aware of a flight between Mumbai and Nashik.

Apart from your yoga school, do spend time at the river front at Panchavati, check out the innumerable temples, visit the old caves at Pandav Leni and Chambhar Leni; and make excursions to Trimbakeshwar and Gangapur dam.

You may alot three days for Nashik and surroundings.

Day 1 - Take in the city in the morning - Panchavati and temples. In the afternoon, visit Gangapur dam which is 30 kms. away. You may not be allowed to see the dam itself, but its quite a pleasant ride through the countryside. Travel by local city bus, an experience in itself!

Day 2 - Visit Trimbakeshwar(ancient Shiva Temple), 30 kms. away in the morning. This is also the origin of the river Godavari, at Brahmagiri high in the hills. Travel by city bus. In the afternoon visit the caves at Chambhar Leni, just outside the city limits. Be prepared for a strenuous climb up to the caves!

Day 3 - Visit the Mukti dham temple at Nashik Road (railway station area) in the morning. In the afternoon climb up to the Pandav Leni caves which are just outside city limits on the Mumbai highway. Visit the Dadasaheb Phalke memorial near the caves, before returning to the city/proceeding to Mumbai.

For visits within the city use an autorickshaw, but do fix up the price before hand ! Nashik autowallahs have put meters on their rickshaws for decorative purposes only!
