“Excellent Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Nice to visit. It takes calories to reach the top and visit the caves. Takes more than 2 hours to pay the visit.

“never seen something like this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

I usually like to travel to a place which can offer me little more than 'just' site seeing. The hike up the mountain to see the cave was good. Something very different from the usual stuff.

“not a cave; borra caves 100 times better”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

worst caves ever visited its not even a cave . Borra caves and baloon caves in AP are 100 times better and worthy . My suggestion is avoid this hyped place and see other places in kalpetta.

“Nice outing, not a very big cave though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Nice walk up the hill, along with friendly local tourists, great view of the area and more of an outing to see the area than anything else, the caves are really not that spectacular. But enjoyed the visit.
Think if time is limited rather do something like chembra peak or some waterfalls.
