We haven’t heard a better piece of news this month. Neelakurinji — a flower that blooms only once in 12 years in Munnar is blooming from July to October and we are making grand plans to hit up Munnar already. After 2006, this is the first time it’s happening now, and the entire spread of hills will be covered in the hues of blue and purple. During this period, adventure clubs and trip planners arrange elaborate treks for nature enthusiasts. And it is said that Eravikulam National Park in Munnar is the most-coveted destination as it offers a view of Neelakurinji and Nilgiris range up close. Drifting into the dreams of witnessing this rare phenomenon, we cannot wait to fill up our Instagram and Snapchat too. The Kerala government is expecting a lot of tourists, and it’s advisable to make bookings much in advance. We are booking ours, what about you?
