Kavala caves, Dandeli These limestone caves are situated at a distance of 25Km from Dandeli. We had to descend 375 steps to reach the cave entrance. One has to crawl 40 ft deep to see the naturally formed Shivalinga. Candles are available outside the cave but do not forget to carry a torch. It is said that these caves have been inhabited since prehistoric times. We were also told that this cave was home to many snakes and bats. Now that sounds scary isn't it? Carry lot of water and glucose as you are sure to get exhausted climbing back those 375 steps.
