I wish they would allow people to take photos of the carvings inside the caves. They're very interesting, unique drawings that are still very much legible.

If The steep hill with stone steps won't take your breath away, the view from the top certainly would. After an exhilarating climb up around 200 m you get to see a scenic picture. The edakkal caves as such have carvings from the early ages though they are not well maintained.

If you want to do a bit of trekking but not too much, this is the right spot to visit in Wayanad... Very well kept by the authorities, it's a nice tourist spot that gives u a bit of the cave experience.. Be ready to walk quite a bit and climb quite a bit..
