The mystical forest of Marayoor is located just close to Chinnar, which is another popular tourist destination in Munnar. To immerse themselves in its exceptional sights people go here that cannot be found anywhere else in Kerala. It’s a place that can truly hypnotize anyone. A number of enchanting waterfalls and sparkling streams can be seen. What makes Marayoor more exotic is its interesting treasure of Dolmens that date back to the ancient Stone Age i.e. the period between 3000 BC and 1400 BC. These huge and enigmatic stone structures represent the tombs and burial chambers of the pre-historic man. They vary in shapes and sizes. We would love taking a trip to these historical dolmens. A visit here would surely leave you in great awe of the artistic skills of the early man. More than 90 painted motifs depicting human and animal figures are there.
A short drive away from Munnar is Marayoor. It can be covered on a day trip, for those who wish to spend a day or two extra in this scenic and sleepy little hamlet. We can choose for a stay in the tribal village of Kanthaloor, located just close by. The village is no less than a heaven and provides for an overwhelming holiday experience. Kanthaloor is steeped in natural beauty of green hills, vibrant flora and beguiling fruit gardens.
