Neelakurinji Blooms Again in Munnar

Neelakurinji  has yet again started blooming in areas of Munnar like Rajamala in Eravikulam National Park, Korandakadu mountain ranges, and Kottakamboor in Vattavada. The blooming of Neelakurinji in Munnar will attract an increased number of tourists in the coming months.

Kerala Forest Department forecast another blooming season to start only in August 2018 in Idukki, where neelakurinji last blossomed in the year 2006. Tourists can purchase tickets to Rajamala from Eravikulam National Park and the forest department will take visitors in special buses to the protected area to see Neelakurinjis.

You can view the Neelakurinji at the Korandakadu mountain ranges  that falls on the Munnar–Mattupetty route. The pretty blue Neelakurinji flowers can already be seen at Kottakamboor in Vattavada, including the places where the tribal community swells. You will be pretty lucky to view the Neelakurinji flows in full bloom if the climatic conditions at Munnar are favorable.

Neelakurinji can be seen at the Eravikulam national park and it is a protected area. In places such as Chokramudi, Lakshmi mountain ranges, Vattavada, and Kottakamboor areas, the land grabbing trend has completely destroyed kurinji's habitats. Adversities like forest fires, unscientific constructions of resorts by land mafia have endangered the blooming of Neelakurinji.

Most of the hotels will be full in the coming days as travellers from different parts will travel to Munnar so as to view the amazing beauty of Neelakurinji flowers.
