Itinerary
Hiking to enjoy caving
You must start early for this hardest of Wayanad adventures. Get to the trail-head at sun up to avoid returning through animal infested deep forest at dusk.
The trail launches into the dense wilderness that blankets the slopes of the imposing mountain, and climbs steeply to an open ridge that holds a forest watch tower. The route now crosses a series of grassy shoulders and forested valleys as it tilts up to reach the edge of a vast rolling plateau of grass on top of the mountain.

The trail follows the contours of the land and eventually takes you to your destination ? the fabled cave system of the ?Abyss of the Birds?, where yogis had taken refuge in the centuries past. These elaborate cave systems are very deep and are inhabited by flocks of birds today.

After a lunch break, explore the caves and head back to civilization. You should try to cover the last stretch of forest before evening to avoid bumping into unwanted four legged acquaintances. The trail will end in the premises of a revered temple, an example of beautiful temple architecture.
