Just about 6 kms from Ulavi through a wonderful trekking path amidst hills and trees, one can see some interesting caves. They have their own stories of religious significance to tell. You can come across the "Akala Gavi" and Panchalingeshwar gavi. Very close to this holy Samadhi is the Akka Nagalambike cave named after Nagalambike, Channabasavannas mother and Basavanna s sister. Nearby are a number of natural caves with interesting rock formations. From Ulavi, one has to trek through the dense forest to reach the narrow caves.
