Hold on, oh you beautiful little flower. The earth revolves twelve times just to witness you. As the sun rises you dazzle with that blue shine of yours. Oh, so frail yet so wonderful. Hold on even if the clouds thunder over you. Hold on, even if the rain with it's hail showers on you. Hold on, even if the rivers brim over you. Hold on. . . . Neelakurinji bloom. August, 5, 2018. Munnar. Never did I expect that the most awaited year since the last twelve would be such a devastating year for God's own country. All prayers with Kerala in it's tough times. #neelakurinji #munnar #kerala #prayforkerala #godsowncountry #aftertwelveyears #shutterbug_stories

Traditionally, the houseboat was called Kettuvallam which means a boat made by tying together pieces of wood. Unbelievable as it may sound, not a single nail is used in the making of a Kettuvallam. Jack wood planks are joined together with coir rope and then coated with black resin made from boiled cashew nut shells😍😍 . . Tour de India will take you on a voyage like never before.

Mesmerizing beauty of Munnar impressed me a lot. Currently laden with rare Neelakurinji flower which blooms once in 12 years is a rare and must definitely be seen. Wish I could be there to witness the beauty of mother nature or knew this before planning my trip in May end this year.

If you ever wanted to head for the hills of Kerala, 2018 - the year of Neelakurinji, may be the perfect time to check off your bucket list. The high-altitude hills around Munnar will be carpeted with delicate bluish-purple flowers from September through October 2018. A once-in-twelve-year stellar phenomenon, this dreamy floral spectacle is accompanied with rare sightings of the majestic Nilgiri Tahr, an endangered mountain goat endemic to these hills. Why do Neelakurinji flowers bloom only once in 12 years? Among the species, plants are classified into annuals and perennials, as they complete their lifecycle accordingly. Some perennials flower only once in a lifetime, spread their seeds and eventually die. Kurinjis are unique with the blossoming period occuring once every twelve years into a sea of blue-purple shade; a rare natural spectacle for which travellers make a beeline for, from all over the world. This year, it is the Neelakurinji, a flower with 40 odd varieties, that blossoms in all its grandeur. Botanists call it the blooming of ‘Strobilanthes kunthianus’, the botanical name of Neelakurinji. Neela in local parlance translates to the colour blue and Kurinji is the local name for the flower. This visual treat is a must for biologists, photographers and nature enthusiats who will be allowed to trek across the hills and witness this occassion in the prime of its bloom.

The #Neelakurinji (Strobilanthes kunthiana) may look like a frail and unassuming little #flower, but when she checks in on the world once every 12 years, she turns the mighty mountains blue in her wake and fills her admirers with hope for a better tomorrow. As they say in #Munnar, "Once in a blue moon, but it blooms". The devastating floods in Kerala have delayed the mass flowering this year. #kurinji #blooms #rareflower #flowerstagram #flowersoftheworld #blue #munnardiaries #2018 #eravikulamnationalpark #Kerala #vattavada #TamilNadu #incredibleindia #india_gram #indiatravelgram

the_traveler_tales

That was a "wowww!!" Moment I I'll tell you how unplanned things can go!! A very normal morning hike in ooty made me see neelkurunji flowers somewhere 30 km away.. like totally unexpected actually!! While i was walking through a narrow lane i heard a bus horn and i just came aside and gave way for the bus, the conductor mistook that as i was waiting for the bus and the bus stopped there for me. I do not even know why i got into it, i just climbed in. The fare was 14 bucks and i still had no idea of what the destination was.( Like seriously ) an uncle standing beside said it was going to coonor and, through the valleys with surreal views i reached the very coonor bus stand. It was then i got in to memory of a guy who has pinged me on Instagram long back, I just gave him a call and he was like " chalo!! Take an auto and come home!!" Like, I don't even know his name till then, i only remember his town he was soo kind to take me on his bike to lambs rock, a view point 9 km away both of us were there and then on a board was written " This is the first biosphere Reserve in India" and we sat on a rock above all.. while i was looking at my dirty pant, Look!! What i found!! I found what people have been waiting for 12 years, I found the flowers which people are dying to see I found the flowers from which the world Nilgiris actually came from.. the very awesome "NELLAKURUNJI"" This is life..!! # # #tamilnaduphotography #neelakurinji #neelakurunji #floweroflife #coonor #nilgiris #travelwriter #travelbogger #traveldairies #traveltamilnadu #tamilnadudiaries #nilgirihills #nilgirimountains #tea #igramming_india #igrammingindia #travelislife #traveller #triptocommunity #tripto #ooty #kotagiri #karnatakatourism #travelkerala @trell.bengaluru @trell.tamilnadu @natgeotravellerindia @igramming_india @igersofindia @incredibleindia @tamilnadudiaries @neelakurunji @neelakurunji_

Ever heard of a flower that blooms once in 12 years? Yes, you heard it right. I am talking about the Kurinji flowers. Feeling lucky to witness the blooming of Kurinji flower @kodaikanal_ I shot this spectacular view on @xiaomiindia Y1. . . Copyrights: DHANANJAY KRISHNA G @djklicks Below description from: www.manjulikapramod.com Spread across the border of three states, the Nilgiris (Sankrit) or the Blue Mountains (English) or Neelmalai (Tamil) relish their identity from the rare purplish blue flowers of Neelakurinji that envelopes the Anamalai, Nilgiris and Palni hills. If a local says that he or she has seen three seasons of kurinji, one can easily guess their age to be more than 36 years because the spectacular carpet of these pale purple flowers blossoms at an altitude of over 2,500 m on the Nilgiri hills only once in 12 years. It had last blossomed in 2006 .It blooms by April or May in Kodaikanal and by September or October in The Nilgiris. One of the places where you can see these flowers is in Munnar. Eravikulum National Park is one of the best attraction to check for this flora. #kurinji #neelakurinji #myphotography #kodaikanal #kodaidairies #shotonphone #mobilephotography #shotonmi #hills #naturephotography #visualsoflife @lonelyplanetindia @world_photo_addiction #picoftheday #travel #mbclickz #explore #india #incredibleindia #indiaclicks #master_shots #nature #createandcapture #visualambassadors #explorer #mountains #instagood #vsco360 #travelingram #visualgangs #dhananjay #djklicks

Why does the Neelakurinji bloom only once in 12 years ? Find out below. A Project Discover India Exclusive. After 12 long years, the Neelakurinji (Strobilanthes kunthianus) has finally started blooming in various parts of Munnar and across the Shola Forests of the Western Ghats in South India. When the flowering is in full swing, the mountains will turn blue and is truly a sight to behold. The Neelakurinji last bloomed in 2006, during which tourists from all over the World flocked to Munnar to catch a glimpse of this rare spectacle. The current erratic nature of the Monsoons have caused a small delay this season, but none the less, has gradually started  flowering. Right now, the highest concentration is in Vattavada. The video and images below are actual content from this season’s bloom. Currently, the Neelakurinji has bloomed only in small patches in Eravikulam National Park and Vattavada. All signs point to peak activity from August end to Mid September. So why do they bloom only once in 12 years? Well it's like this. There are flowers that complete their life cycle in 1 year, called Annuals and there are flowers whose life cycle is more than 2 years, called Perennials. Annuals grow from seeds, blossoms, sets seeds and then die. Perennials usually flower every year and sets seeds. Neelakurinji on the other hand, belongs to a special subset of Perennials that only bloom at the end of their life cycle when they are fully matured. After blooming, they produce seeds and die. The seeds then start their long 12 year journey to fully mature and bloom. Then they too set seeds and die. This cycle continues again and again, each time giving way to a new generation of shrubs. Thats why they bloom only once every 12 years. Follow @projectdiscoverindia and use #projectdiscoverindia to be featured and for a chance to be published in our Online Magazine. In the mean time, keep exploring! Know someone who is planning to visit Munnar? Tag them below and let them know. #keralatourism #munnar #idukki #godsowncountry #kerala #neelakurinji
