It’s really a great place for everybody.
1. Ancient and quite large, need entire day to mesmerise.
2. Well maintained.

These are near to Aurangabad, so easy to approach. Better will be to read a bit on wiki beforehand and spend quality time at selected caves. I suggest keep about 3-4 hrs to visit.

The caves from 27th (mostly Jain caves) onward were blocked due to a landslide. If you want to visit, you will have to take the road and approach from cave no 32/30 (left side of main entrance).

Guide may not be required if you have done a bit of reading on wiki beforehand. Spend quality time at selected caves (Kailash is biggest) and few Buddhist caves.
The Kailash temple (1st big structure right in front of entry) is worth spending quality time. If you have time, climb from the side to go on top of the hill. Gives an idea on the scale.

There are not many decent places to eat nearby (MTDC has a very basic restaurant)

Stunning caves, would recommend starting with the Jain temples from 32 then working your way back to front with the highlight at 16. You can take a bus to 32 from entrance. We spent a best part of 4 hours here took our time definitely need plenty of water and good walking shoes, it was 40C. There are plenty of guides to choose from official ones who charge 1400 rupees to others for 400, better to do a bit of reading up before you go to really appreciate it

What an amazing place this is, these caves are equal to the TAJ for me. So much to see and take in. It would be great to visit in the monsoon season to experience the waterfalls.

The caves are very beautiful and a must see if in Aurangabad.
Entrance for foreigners is 500inr.
To get there, take a local red bus from Aurangabad CBS to Ellora for 33inr one way. The staff at the bus station will point you to the right bus.
