A lesser known prehistoric site situated at Marayoor. It does not resemble a tourist spot , but a calm and quiet place next to sugarcane plantation and jaggery extraction unit. Absolutely limited parking and no facilities for tourists. Consists of a lot of capstones dotted here and there and a great view of the entire valley. Be there and be... More

We visited this place while on the way to Marayoor. Need to trek to this place from the main road. So be sure to wear comfortable footwear. The forest guards will accompany you from the gate.

Adverse weather conditions may put you off, but don't miss out on this challenging walk across the hills. They offer excellent views of the Bison valley and the surrounding peaks.

Muniyara dolmens are situated near Marayoor town and you have to ask for directions at the city center to be able to track it. It is located around 4 km from the city center and you have to go on a narrow village road to reach destination. It is a pity that a location of such historic significance is not... More
