Can you take a lucky guess at what we’re describing? Here’s introducing, Neelkurunji flowers, one of the most spectacular natural phenomena of the state! Exploring pastures of flowers is one of the most enchanting things to do in Munnar.
This gorgeous flower is said to blossom every 12 years, or so, during the months of July to October. During this time, the hills of Munnar swiftly transform into gardens of Eden – a place fit for the heavens. The striking blue image is like a page right from a storybook. Every corner spells magic. Every inch is dreamy. Kids will feel like they are part of a fairy-tale. Parents will be reminded of their childhood fantasies. Grandparents will be left speechless to have witnessed this spectacle. An extraordinary sight for human eyes, botanists describe it as the blooming of ‘Strobilanthes kunthianus’. With 40 odd varieties to its name, it makes for a visual extravaganza like no other.
