Lying at the head of the main pass through the dark eroded hills of the Western Ghats, Nashikmakes an interesting stopover on the lengthy journey to or from Bombay, 187 Nashik Location km southwest. Nashik mainly know as pilgrim centre, is in a true way city of temple. The areas like Panchavati are worth visiting places of the city. The near by area such as Trimbakeshwar, Vani, Shirdi, Pandavlena and others are also the tourists attractions.

Buses from Bombay pull in at the Mahamarga Bus Stand, a ten-minute rickshaw ride from the city centre. Aurangabad buses terminate at the chaotic central City Bus Stand (aka the CBS), an easy walk from several cheap hotels and restaurants.

Arrival by train is more problematic, as the railway station,Nashik Road,lies 8km southeast. Buses meet incoming trains, but they tend to be sporadic or packed. Luckily, there’s no shortage of shared taxis and auto-rickshaws. If you plan to leave Nashik by train, particularly on a weekend when the city booking counter, off MG Rd (Mon-Fri 10am-5pm) is closed, reserve your outward ticket on arrival.

Predictably for a city that sees so few foreign visitors, the MTDC tourist office, near the golf course on Old Agra Rd, is welcoming, but not worth the trouble to find. Their daily Nashik Darshan Tour of the city and its environs will only appeal to those with a passion for ferro-concrete temple architecture.To change money, the State Bank of India (Mon-Fri 10am-2pm, Sat 10am-noon) is just up from the City Bus Stand on Swami Vivekanand Rd. The GPO is around the corner on Trimbak Road.
