Getting There & Away
Buses from Aurangabad or Jalgaon will drop you at the Fardapur T-junction (where the highway meets the road to the caves), 4km from the site. From here, after paying an ‘amenities’ fee (₹10), walk to the departure point for the buses (one way with/without AC ₹30/20), which zoom up to the caves. Buses return half-hourly to the T-junction; the last bus is at 6pm. Note that the caves are closed on Monday.
All MSRTC (www.msrtc.gov.in) buses passing through Fardapur stop at the T-junction. After the caves close you can board buses to either Aurangabad or Jalgaon outside the MTDC Holiday Resort in Fardapur, 1km down the main road towards Jalgaon. Taxis are available in Fardapur; ₹2000/3000 should get you to Jalgaon/Aurangabad.
The Aurangabad–Jalgaon Hwy was being expanded to four lanes at time of writing – expect faster drive times between the two and to Ajanta from either city in the near future.
