Some locals believe the caves are a natural testament to the Hindu faith. Explore the tranquil and picturesque island, teeming with green foliage and scampering monkey, before visiting the caves.

What our guests say about this trip

I had originally planned to travel to India alone, but ended up traveling with mom. Enchanting Travels designed a trip that worked well for what we wanted to see and experience in just over 10 days, including a volunteer experience that I wanted to have! The team works to make sure that our requests were taken into consideration and ensure that guests have the best quality experience! The excellent coordination between all members of the travel team from the coordinator to the driver to the guides so that one feels safe and taken care of and knowing this now, I would absolutely feel comfortable traveling alone in the hands of Enchanting Travels! 🙂 I highly recommend having them help to plan your trip to the many destinations worldwide that they work with, especially if it is a place that one is not familiar with!
