One of the most exciting things about Marayoor is its natural sandalwood forest. A walk through the path lined with sandalwood trees on both sides provides a unique experience to you. The very air is filled with the refreshing smell of sandalwood which will stimulate your olfactory senses. There is no other place where you can trek through the sandalwood forest. Hence the chance should not be missed in your visit to the unique land.
There is a government-owned sandalwood factory where you can see how oil is extracted from the wood and roots of the tree. If you are in Marayoor, do not miss the opportunity to see the process.
