Hi,

I am flying in to Mumbai and wish to visit the Ajanta caves near Aurangabad and also Dandi where the Salt March ended. Mumbai to Aurangabad and Dandi are easy enough by train from Mumbai but what I am looking for is some travel advice on how to get from Aurangabad to Dandi without having to go back through Mumbai.
Thanks in advance.

You can take a direct train from Jalgaon (closer to Ajanta) to Navsari. The downside is that the train reaches Navsari at 22:15 and only sleeper class is available in the train.

Aurangabad is spectacularly badly connected by train. You could try taking a bus to jalgaon from Ajanta, then train from jalgaon to surat, and then the last leg by train or bus.

Flights to Jalgaon

Air Deccan has started flights to Jalgaon from Mumbai. Ajanta caves are about 80km from Jalgaon. See if this suits you
