It an adventure rock climbing. 5000 years of traditional history is been written on the rocks they say. It is the beauty of Wayanad.

Don't break your legs climbing such a steep height for just a green view scenery. There are many hill stations in India that will offer you better view without roasting up your skin in sun and legs in pain.

Visited few times with friends..Very interesting place that contains drawings that range over periods of 5000BC. The stone age carvings of Edakkal are very rare and are the only known examples from south India. Dont miss it wen u travel to waynad.

The place is real historic and interesting. But I would advise if you are with kids below 5-7 years please don't try it. The transportation is only till half a kilometre far from the ticket counter... then u have to climb the heights... after the ticket counter it's real climbing... it's good for half a day visit... don't try it...

Edakkal caves are located about 15 kms from Bathery. It's a short and winding road leading up to the parking lot. The fit and the determined can make it to the top.
