Witness Munnar Turning Into A Blue Paradise After 12 Years!

Famously known as ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala has numerous hill stations offering enchanting landscapes. Whichever one you go to, you will find yourself experiencing the serenity of nature.

One hill station, in particular, that’s loved by all is Munnar.

Located in Idukki district of Kerala, Munnar was once a resort for the British elite. Even today, there are ample resorts in Munnar that offer some royal amenities, Club Mahindra Munnar resort being one of them.

While Munnar has always been a popular tourist destination, the Neelakurinji flowering season is what makes it even more popular this year.

Neelakurinji is a type of flower found on the hills of Munnar. ‘Neela’ means blue and ‘kurinji’ is the name given to the flower by tribes living in the area[1]. The blooming season takes place only once every 12 years, and during this period, the hillsides are carpeted with a mass of tiny blue Neelakurinji. The last such event was recorded in 2006.

If you plan on visiting places in Munnar, witnessing the Neelakurinji should be on your list. The period from August to October is a perfect time to view this unique phenomenon. 

One good place to sight the Neelakurinji would be the hills and valleys around Kundala Lake. Other spots in Munnar that witness this occurrence in abundance are Koviloor, Kadavari, Rajamalai, and Eravikulam National Park.

Bonus! If you have a Club Mahindra membership, you can plan your stay at the Club’s flagship resort in Munnar. A peek at Club Mahindra resort reviews will show you how members appreciate the comfortable and spacious rooms equipped with all the essential amenities. The activity center at the Munnar resort offers many games, and the in-house restaurant serves delicious food.
