Vagamon is an untouched land in the heavenly state of Kerala, located far away from the madding crowd. The sleepy hill station will win your heart with its deep valleys, widely-stretching green meadows, dense pine forests, tea estates and waterfalls. In fact, the National Geographic Traveler has listed Vagamon as the '50 most attractive places to visit in India’. The drive to this hill station is extraordinary, to say the least. The winding road cut through solid rock lined with pine forests, takes you through lush green hills, with the plains below running along with you. The landscape here is mostly hilly with its green meadows filled with a wide variety of flowers and orchids. Vagamon offers opportunities for various adventure activities such as trekking, paragliding, mountaineering and rock climbing. An interesting place to visit here is the Indo-Swiss Project Dairy Farms, located on Kurisumala Hill. The farm is run by monks and you need special permission to go inside. Kottayam is the closest railway station from here and Cochin International Airport is the nearest airport.

These grasslands are covered in green velvet if u notice them well. You can just lie down there and take in that fresh air and enjoy the spell bound beauty of the nature there. The cool breeze are bound to take all your tensions and stress in the rat - race of the daily life. If you are mad about trekking these meadows are bound to excite you. It was really nice to have a look at the tea plantations that looks like green carpet rolled out for you. The meadows are directly accessible from the road. The misty air will sooth your mind give you some quality time in the lap of nature. Did I tell you that this place is not just owned by meadows but frothing waterfalls and rippling brooks that always hurry down from the rocks. You can have a visual of fine eucalyptus plantations down the hill along with the tree estates. The roads are zig - zag measuring which gives you closer look at the tea plantations. In all ways this a nature treat for you.
