Where to Stay
The Hotel Kailas is located right opposite the Ellora caves. Its a relaxing, tranquil place with stone walls and a scenic landscape. Rates are 900 rupees ($20) for a hostel room, 1500 rupees ($35) for a cottage, and 2000 rupees ($50) for a cottage facing the caves. The hotel has plenty of amenities for guests including a restaurant, internet access, a library and games. You can also go paragliding.
Quality accommodations at Ajanta are limited so if you need to stay in the area, its best to head to the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporations Holiday Resort in nearby Fardapur.
