We finally reached the caves at 3 : 40 ( it was to shut at 4 ). I was happy that we made it! But no! We had to walk another kilometer to get the tickets.This road was worse than the earlier one. We were tired and exhausted and the roads were very steep! We were running on these almost 50 degrees steep roads !!We were happy when we got the tickets but later came to know there is another trek of almost 500 steps. We gathered a lot of courage telling each other that we're not coming back so to see this and then call the day.We climbed with a lot of pit stops.
Edakkal Caves : Discovered in 1896 by Superintendent of Police, Malabar, Edakkal caves are remnants of the grandeur and magnificence of our history and cultural heritage. Fascinating drawings adorn the walls of these caves and the area around these has large boulders crushing the large inflated human ego within a minute as they make people look miniscule in comparison to them.
3 edakkal caves, the second best things to do in wayanad, its a 340 steep climb but the view at the top is worth it. It drizilled while we trekked up so we got an awesum view.....
