Kukkal Caves

Kukkal Caves
It would be a great idea to take a local guide to Kukkal caves which is 40 kms from the bus stand. One has to take a bus bound to Poombarai and from there it is reachable by walk. A brisk walk via Geranium plantations, Pine and Wattle forest leads to the Kukkal forest rest house. A leisurely walk in the early morning hours from the rest house gives many visual surprises like the beauteous shoal laden with wild large Orchids. One has to be very careful about the blood sucking leeches on the way. The overhanging slabs of rocks forms the caves of shelter which is at an altitude of 1500 m. The caves bear testimony to the early settlement of tribals called Palayans who used to wear leaf cloths. The Manjam Path Valley nearby is a dwelling place for many bisons.
