Located on the western fringe of Idukki at the elevation of 1,100 m above sea level lies Vagamon (Wagamon) with immaculate forests, exotic flora and fauna and verdant meadows. The early planters cleared the mountain range for the cultivation of tea and coffee.

Vagamon witnessed its initial changes in 1926 when Walter Duncan set up their tea plantation in a huge 534-acre of land. Then again a decade later, Christian Missionaries set up Kurisumala Ashram, which transformed the region into popular spiritual nerve centre. Besides being a spectacular location for tourists, Vagamon is also known as Trekker’s Paradise, because it has idyllic trekking spots. Feel the indomitable Kerala fortitude on your Vagamon tours and let the soothing effect of glistening greens work their charm on you.
