Edakkal Caves

A trek up Ambukuthi Hills will take you to Edakkal Caves, one of the oldest human settlements ever discovered

The aroma of coffee fills the air, the path leading to where history has carved a space for itself. The rock is said to have been formed from a large split in a huge rock, resulting in the creation of the caves, which are two natural rock formations. The caves are about 1200ft above sea level and were discovered in 1895. Located 10 km from Sultan Bathery, it provides historians with information regarding the life and times of earlier civilisations. The origin of the paintings in Edakkal Caves is shrouded in mystery. However, these are remarkable for their complexity and scale.

Ancient scripts, engravings of human figures, animals and other day-to-day objects can be seen inside the caves. The diverse engravings suggest that the caves were inhabited several times at different periods, and the oldest dates back to the Stone Age. A collection of earthenware and pottery was found in the ancient burial sites known as Muniyara. Artefacts from the site are on display at the Wayanad Heritage Museum.
