Muniyara dolmens are situated near Marayoor town and you have to ask for directions at the city center to be able to track it.

The Village Walk is normally what it is called... by the localities... It more like a tracking and you have to walk down the hill and reach out the place. Caves seen where the ancient sadhus use to do sadhana and so on. Was wondering how did they manage to pull all the big stones together ... but worth seeing

Magnificent, spiritual. Visited it during lunchtime at the high school that shares this ancient site. Some teens were hanging out eating their lunches inside some of these archaic burial tombs. When I asked if they knew about these prehistoric treasures, several were willing to impart their knowledge. The dolmens are set in the center of a massive valley flanked by... More

off the beaten path and not much frequented, but worth the drive and the setting. Nestled between the bluish mountains u can combine it with with a trek in to the country side abt 15 km further up where theres a lot of interesting fruit gardens.

These can be found at on hills around Munnar. There might be many of them but we found these near our hotel - The Wind. It just started out as a small trek but with the help of the local villagers we found a lot of places which they called Muniyara. The view from these muniyara was too good. And... More

Nice walk to dolmens, you can visit the place and enjoy sunset and sunrise. Nothing much about the dolmes but the hills are beautiful. Evenings and morning are cold with strong breeze.
