“A truly Amazing Experience”

Akka Mahadevi Caves
Ranked #4 of 6 things to do in Srisailam
Attraction details
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Just been there over the weekend and must say was a mesmerizing experience.
Went with the family and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. It is 1 hr boat ride from srisailam and the Aptdc takes 270 per head and you need to wait until they reach the 20 headcount.
The trip takes around 3-4 hrs. On reaching the caves; there is an idol of Akkamahadevi at the entrance and you need to walk a considerable distance inside the dark caves to reach the lingam.
The caves as per the geoglists are millions of years old. Its better to go in a group as if you take 1 wrong turn can easily get lost in the caves. Although i did not a way where one can get lost, but proabably we were in a group of 20 ppl. While entering keep in mind to have your eyes down on the ground as the way is not smooth. Carrying a torch is a good idea. And remember dont point the torch light at the roof as there are several bats which might frighten you.
Overall, the experience is worth going there.

The caves aren't a grand affair, there is a Natural Lingam inside the cave and an ashram above the caves where the pundits reside. But you will love the ferry ride to and fro the caves. 16kms=1 hour of water ride+ beautiful hills all around you. The serenity of it all would take your breath away.
