The caves were well maintained and really a proof of the past is present there. Trekking in the caves gives you a different sort of feeling.

I was told that it is steep and difficult for seniors to climb. But the experience was unlimited. Challenging, more so when it is raining. Steep but was thrilling to climb. Visit and enjoy the place with memorable experience. Words fail.

From the parking a height of 300 feet need to be trekked up to reach the caves. The road which takes the tourists to the caves is well built but the slope is too much. Reaching to the top of Edakkal caves is quite a task. It is approximately two hours of trekking plus a bit of rock climbing. We... More

Its rainy day when we went to edakkal caves. But i like the way we climbed the hills to see the caves. The think more satisfactory for me to climb the hills and see the view from there is beautiful more than seeing the cave. I will not recommend this place to people who cannot climb mountains (the steps are... More

The stairs will leave you breathless to be teased by a structure made up of inorderly placed rocks with engravings left to your imagination and suspicion as to who when and why carved them. Cave experience, real, go to Meghalaya.

Good things. - Maintained well , excellent for Indian standards. - Having proper steps to reach such a high altitude - excellent approach road. - guides to explain inside the cave. Average things - You will park your car in the first parking lot thinking its the official space, but you will walk 200 mts in the slope to find... More
