Details

Mayavi caves is a beautiful technical cave situated in South India and are filled with stalactites, stalagmites, flowstones, shining mineral flows, etc. It is just a 6 hours drive from Bangalore. It is a technical cave because of the few vertical sections inside the cave. These sections need you to be proficient in rappelling and ascending skills.

Why July 20th?
The greatest exploration of mankind to date happened on July 20th, 1969.  On this day human's set foot on the farthest land from the earth - The Moon. So, 2019 July 20th is the 50th year anniversary of this greatest exploration. We think we should celebrate this by going to a place where other humans cannot go that easily. It will also be a bonus if that land looks out of this world. Hence, we chose to go to Mayavi caves on this special day!
