Tour Details

Every twelve years, the hills of Munnar in Kerala burst into a sea of blue, a rare natural spectacle for which travelers make a beeline for. This monumental event is the Blooming of the Neelakurinji Flower, which appears once every 12 years here in Munnar.

Neelakurinji or ‘Strobilantheskunthianum’ blooms in 40 or so varieties, a majority of them being blue in color. ‘Neela’ literally translates to ‘blue’ and kurinji is the name given to it by the tribal’s of the area. Last seen in 2006, the time for viewing them begins in August and lasts up to October. In Munnar, one can view this great sight from Kovilur, Kadavari, Rajamala and Eravikulam National Park. Eravikulam is incidentally home to the endangered Nilgiri Tahr, hosting a majority of the remaining population of the species. Botanists and nature lovers alike mark their calendars in anticipation of this event. Standing amidst the Neelakurinji, one is transported to a different dimension altogether. One can view the shorter variation (about 2 ft.) at higher spots and longer variations (about 5 to 10 ft.) are seen at lower spots.

Specialized tours of this rare phenomenon are available during this time period around the area and treks are organized to view this masterpiece of nature.
