Sultan Bathery - Kalpetta (10 kms) ..
 
Visited Edakkal Caves in kalpetta and wayanad museum.TO reach eddakal caves you have to go in a 4 wheel drive jeep . Personal vehicles go up to a point and from there you can share a jeep , i m sure u will not forget this jeep ride ever . You have to climb a little from the point jeep leaves you to reach Eddakal caves .
