Hi! Great pictures. I am a college student, presently touring Pune and tomorrow I plan to visit Karla caves. I am enjoying the place to the fullest but missed on a good offer(http://tinyurl.com/n5lnku)that would have saved 60% of my traveling costs. City Super Sale offers discounted rates as low as US$25 per night between July 10-September 30. Better luck next time!
