Kavala Caves are limestone caves located 25 km away from the base camp at Dandeli. Kavala caves are situated on the face of one of the mountains in the heart of Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary. These caves are very tiny in dimension and an interesting way to enter them, after climbing down 375 steps one reaches the Cave entrance, and then has to crawl 40 ft deep through winding and have a lot of stalagmite formations. There is a particular huge stalagmite, which is revered by the local people as a Shivling. A temple stands in front of the caves. The naturally formed Shivalinga is a miracle of nature and should not be missed.
All those who have been visited to the Kavala Caves say that it must certainly be visited and must not be missed at any cost while on a trip to Dandeli or Uttara Kannada district.
