Located 40 Kms from Munnar, Marayoor is a rain shadow village lying in the eastern side of the Western Ghats and is bordered by the neighbouring state Tamil Nadu.
This place is especially an excellent trekking spot for adventure seekers. The road from Rajamala to Marayoor is filled with lush green tea estates. On the Marayoor-Kerala-Indiaou drive by, there are occasional waterfalls.
This Place is also a historical site and houses the ‘muniyaras’ or the stone coffins with underground tunnels, which date back to the Neolithic period. These cave-like structures resting on vertical rocks are present everywhere - they are stone slabs resembling crudely-made boxes. There are paintings depicting the legendary wanderings of ‘Rama and Sita' and the 'Pandavas' inside the caves.
