Munnar’s resplendent beauty lies in its many hills, tea plantations, coffee estates and just the overall magnificence of the mighty Western Ghats. At a chilly yet comfortable altitude of 1600 m above sea level, Munnar sees flocks of travellers throughout the year, swarming in to the hilltops for that perfect photograph or just laying on the slopes for the sun and the moon. The colours of Munnar are primarily Green except for a certain few months of this year. It is when these aforementioned slopes are garlanded with composites of Blue and graces the grasslands of the Munnar like an artist on a canvas.An occurrence of once every twelve years, the blooming of the Neelakurunji or Strobilanthes Kunthiana , as botanists would say, is a natural phenomenon that can be witnessed during the months of July to October 2018. The event happened many years ago in 2006 and it can be said, in good reason, that Neelakurunji in 2018 will be a sight to behold. The Purple Blue haze that will be engulfing the hilltops have always evoked poetic emotions in many. While some wrote on how the blooming of the flower is similar to womanhood, others simply referred to the classic and undying togetherness of two souls.Some of the best ways on how to see Neelakurunji flowers would be to get assistance from local guides through our Munnar tour packages. The Neelakurunji in Munnar, Kerala is widely regarded as the one of the most remarkable occurrences in the history of the state. The state has been blessed to have been able to parent this phenomenon of every twelve years, one that is both captivating and unmissable, one which paints the Kerala’s boon in full splendour.
