Vagamon : Gem Of South India

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive    ~   Eleonora Duse


Greeted by a cool and calm climate, tourists and natives, both agree that Vagamon is indeed a jewel in South India. Vagamon hill station in Idukki is among the few spots on the planet that need to be experienced first-hand to truly discover its glory.

This quaint town lies untouched by any modern influences and is neatly tucked away in Idukki district.

Vagamon is a hotspot for tourists across the world. To delve among the misty mountains and the beautiful scenery is a crowd favorite. Equally loved by both natives and outsiders, Vagamon has entered the list of NatGeo Traveller’s list of “50 most attractive places to visit in India”.

Vagamon is a tiny plantation township in Central Travancore, finished with an overtone of green. It lies at the fringe of the Western Ghats and the foothills on its lower side reach up to Teekoy with a gradual descent. Besides that, this narrow strip of descending land gives a vital connectivity to the plains as both sides of Vagamon up to Kuttikkanam on the south-west and Moolamattom on the north-east, are marked by steep and inaccessible hill slopes. Moreover, traveling by the hill highway in this section is an exhilarating experience, with deep valleys and views all around. Reaching Vagamon itself involves traversing a meandering road that is cut into solid rock and lined with pine forests. Trekking among these areas is a common hobby for many.

With a never-ending line of lush green hills, breathtaking ravines, and meandering rivulets, Vagamon has always been the perfect tourist destination. Situated 1200 meters above the sea level, this gem is surrounded by the greenery of tea gardens, murmuring pine forest, small waterfalls, and attractive meadows. Reaching Vagamon itself is an extraordinary experience. And as you wind your way through the green-capped hills, the rolling plains come into view thousands of feet below you.

The hill station has a chain of 3 beautiful hills called Thangal hill, Murugan Hill and Kurismala that give an enchanting feel to this beautiful hill station. So visit Vagamon hill station to experience eternal bliss and peace of mind. The Vagamon hill station offers you a unique and different environment in comparison to other hill stations of Kerala.
