discover the nilgiris
Nilgiris – it’s easy to get poetic when pronouncing the name; to linger over it; to stretch out the word like a song… So evocative is the name of the misty beauty of these blue-green mountains, shared by tamil nadu, karnataka and kerala…
And nothing is lost in translation for nila means blue and giri means mountains… blue mountains is an equally enchanting name.
One of the earliest descriptions of the nilgiris where the kurumba village resort is situated was the one by captain s. b, ward, dy surveyor general of the then madras government. “The climate of these mountains,” he said “is the finest known in the tropics.”
And we at kurumba village resort intend to keep it that way – the rain forests that surround the property are dark and deep; the stream that runs along the border of kurumba village resort is pure and pristine; and the mountains – tall and sentinel – guard the secrets of the past in their stony folds.
Ootacamund, queen of the hill stations, is only 32 km away while coonoor and kotagiri are other spots that visitors can explore at leisure. Scale the highest peak in south India – dodabetta – all of 8,649 ft; head out to mukurthi, another lush rainforest area; or the hills and dales of upper bhavani.
We can also help you to forge ahead to kanyakumari, the tip of india where three oceans meet; to chennai by the sea or even to the neighbouring states of kerala and karnataka.
