Referred to as 'Kerala's Spice Garden', Idukki is a tourist haven, known for its forests, mountains, tea plantations, hill stations, waterfalls and wildlife sanctuaries. The biggest attraction here is the Neelakurinji which paints the hillocks a blanket of purple-blue every 12 years.
The Idukki Arch Dam, the biggest in the nation, spans Kuravan Kurathi hills and is exclusive to the district. Idukki is home to Anamudi and Meesapulimala, the two highest peaks in India and some of India's best wildlife sanctuaries and forest reserves. Project Tiger, an initiative to safeguard tigers in the wild, has had great success at Thekkady's Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary and the Eravikulam National Park was created specifically to advance the cause of the critically endangered Nilgiri Tahr, a species of the mountain goat.
Over the years, the district has also become a hub for adventure tourism - be it hiking, boating, mountain climbing, paragliding or a jungle safari. Three rivers - Thodupuzhayar, Periyar and Thalayar, as well as their tributaries, protect Idukki's evergreen vegetation.
