Edakkal Caves -

Edakkal caves located at an altitude of 1200m above mean sea level on Ambukutty Mala. If you are a true fan of trekking and like to climb a great deal with minimal amount of safety, Edakal caves is for you. To get to the pedestal of a mountain from foothill, we needed to Trek approx 1.5 KM. The route is really steep and it's tough for women and I could see the enthusiasm among kids as they just climbed it as a sport. Once you reach the base of the mountain, Purchase the entry tickets in the counter. From here, more steeper climbing to reach the top of Mountain through 300 steps
