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 in good condition. So no worries.

Make sure that you reach there to the ticket counter by 4pm. The counter is about a km uphill walk from the car parking area,
From the ticket counter, it is a 300 steps ascent. Surely not for the aged. And sure to test your fitness level.
This cave (or rather a shelter) is of historic significance, dating back 6000 years, with wall inscriptions.

Physically fit person(s) should attempt this considering at the end you are visiting caves with ancient carvings. However, i enjoyed the climb which is equivalent to 125 floors. And the view from the top is exuberant.

Edakkal caves, worth visiting for people interested in historical monuments and trying to understand the ancestor's lifestyle. Difficult trekking - Not suitable for kids or elders. From the parking lot one have to spend atleast an hour to climb till the caves. Per se these are not caves but rock shelters, natural formation. Inscriptions are more like modern line drawings of different human and animal characters. Very interesting to note.
