Edakkal Caves | Wayanad Tourist Place

 

The Edakkal caves are two natural caves at a remote location at Edakkal, 25 km from Kalpetta in the Wayanad district of Kerala in India's Western Ghats. They lie 1,200 m above sea level on Ambukutty Mala, near an ancient trade route connecting the high mountains of Mysore to the ports of the Malabar coast.

The best example of ancient life on earth. The cave is full of ancient inscriptions and it’s beautiful to look at. Gives us a glimpse of the past. The best part is the hike that we have to do to reach the place. It’s almost 1.5 km of steep slope and stairways. It’s the most amazing experience that we can have in our life. The top view from the cave entrance is amazing and beautiful. If you ever visit Wayanad, you must see this place and This is the place where can feel the Nature




Had lots of time in SultanBattery and decided the visit. Plan for 9 AM to 3 PM to really enjoy the trek and place. 1st checkpoint is the parking ticket entry barrier, 40 per car, they give you the parking lot number, and you need to park there. Was a low crowd, so no hassles.

The 1.5 km trek from the park to the cave is moderate and will need OK fitness. On the way, the wayside shops solicit all types of business, we just smiled and say NO. You need to carry water to drink, and knee braces if you are used to it. We went slow n steady, reached the ticket place, 20 per person and they check for plastic bottles. You go up granite steps, then steel steps, well made. The climb is steep in sections and goes up 300 steps into a cave. Just a cave, but what makes this special is the engravings from about 6k years ago. Local guides appear magically, and unofficial, and you can pay them a nominal fee. They explain well too 👍 Exit is clean too..

A good workout and an OK activity to do. History buffs would love it!
