The place is very neat for the # of travelers it seems round the season. A great trek uphill for a splendid view - caves were just amazing.

These caves are a must visit given its uniqueness. The trek is twisted and filled with challenging turns but the way throughout the whole trek is filled with beautiful views. A lot of shots to capture yourself and be mesmerised by the sheer enormity of the rocks.

I could see only few carvings, sculpture work at the entrance and they were very nice and natural looking like real. I could not go to the cave as the gradient was too steep.

Be sure to take some water and snacks with you before starting your journey. This place is very steep and trekking will be to good. Once you get to top,you can have a nice view of the place.

We visited Edakkal during the rains, so it was not crowded. The caves itself was not as impressive as i thought, mainly because it is actually not a cave.

Liked: A cave of historic importance. A good calorie burner. Stunning view from the top. The Cave itself! Disliked: Since 2009, visitors are not allowed to climb to the top of the peak, which actually would have given a more challenging trek to the adventure lovers. Your journey ends at the second cave. Road: The road till parking lot is... More
