violet flowers of neelakurinjis spreaded on the mountain slopes in rajamala munnar kerala"The Famous and Rare Violet flower Carpet of Munnar....the Neelakurinjis"

These plants are an important part of the flora found here...They flowers in groups and gives the whole mountain a violet colour..It is great rush of tourists in this place when this flower blooms, for it happens only once in 12 years..And in those busy seasons you will have to put more time to visit the places here for it can't be covered in a day..

We got time to visit this single tourist spot only due to great rush of tourists at that time..And one more thing.. their are times when the atmosppheric temperature goes below 0 degree celcius.
