Getting to Fire Mountain


LET US MAKE YOUR TRIP TO NIMBOLI A PLESANT EXPERIENCE:

AIRPORT

Nearest international and domestic airports are in Mumbai, 60 kms. from Nimboli.  Some guests spend a nght in Mumbai to acclimate and/or shop, while others are anxious to step on to the sacred ground of Nityananda's Temple. Contact us to help you arrange car transportation in Mumbai or make some suggestions on where to stay. Please do not try to get a Mumbai taxi to bring you to Ganeshpuri. They are not familiar with directions and you may be charged too much.

RAILWAY: 

Nearest railheads are Thane, Kalyan on Central Railway and Vasai that are within an hour and half car ride. The 1st and 2nd Air Conditioned class railway cars are a fun way to travel within India. Everyone always suggests that you watch your belongings, but we have had the most marvelous experiences meeting Indians from all parts of the country from singing bhagans, great story telling, sharing techical computer advise, and physical help with "schleping" baggage. We can arrange for a taxi to pick you up at the rail station and bring you to Fire Mountain.

ROAD:

Ganeshpuri/Nimboli are 80 kims from downtown Mumbai.Few foreigners actually drive themselves within India and hired local drivers know how to get in and out of Mumbai and Ganeshpuri.
