Caves have got some engravings on walls that you will appreciate. In addition it has some mythological story behind it. Its a lot of walk on a steep hills be ready for that. You may get extremely tired.

Nice place, but the approach and the climb up is tiresome and uncomfortable because of the crowd. It's nice once you reach the top, but the crowd is annoying.

Edakkal Caves has a lot of historic importance. It is not advisable for those who are not physically fit. You need to climb and at places there are no proper steps and one needs to be very careful. The place is certainly worth visiting.

Went with family with very young kid and friends. Nice place to hike. Overall experience at this place is good. It will be difficult for very young kids to walk.
