flora of Marayoor



Bison, elephant, gaur, spotted deer, sambar, rabbit, loris, wild boar, languor and monkeys are a few other common denizens of the jungle. The Thar (striped goat) seen in Marayur region and Rajamala is said to be found nowhere else in the world. Chinnar wild sanctuary is the haven for two highly endangered species-the grizzled giant squirrel and the star tortoise.

As you travel along the road from Karimutti to Chinnar, you can spot elephants, deers, samnar, hanuman monkeys, and sometimes peacocks on either side of the road.
