Wildlife Sanctuaries to explore in Nilgiris

The Name ‘Nilgiris’ means Blue hills (Neelam – Blue and Giri – Hill or Mountain). The view of the violet blossoms of ‘kurinji’ flower enveloping the hill ranges periodically. Hence the name Nilgiri arose.

The Mudumalai Sanctuary is an important wildlife habitat due to its strategic position as a Wildlife corridor between several other protected areas making an essential part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.
