A sustainable tourism project focusing on the development of Munnar, which connects expertised people across the nation to work towards resolving the social causes of the place.

The programme was officially launched in the Month of February by Shri.M.M Mani and Shri.C Ravindranath Honorable Ministers of Power and Education respectively. It is in its 2nd phase now.
As a team of young visionaries, we would like to combine our strength inorder to build a methodology to sustainably bring a development places such as Munnar, and set it as an example for similar drives in the future.Through using our products such as hello munnar , a tourist should be able to experience the feasible happiness from heart.
Through this project , we collectively consider technology as one of the strong weapons to resolve the social issues of Munnar as an important tourist destination.We act as an intermediary between government, technical people, data analysers, content writers, designers, guides and so on.
As part of this project, a progressive web application named hello munnar was launched, which guides the tourists to more than 65 destinations of Munnar, divided into 7 different routes, identified by VIBGYOR colours.The project was initiated with a Code4Munnar three day hackathon in Munnar Engineering College.The project is in its 2nd phase of adding more amenities and information related to each destination. Nilgiri Tahr adorned in Neelakurinji flowers has been chosen as the mascot for VIBGYOR Tourism.
Hello Munnar is a progressive web app designed as a support tool for the
project MUNNAR VIBGYOR TOURISM by Kites Foundation in collaboration with District
The app creates a travel friendly experience for the tourists and improves the discoverability of Munnar by branching the tourist destinations into 7 routes and identifying them with VIBGYOR colours.Each route has a particular colour and a story behind each colour best describes its uniqueness.
