Vagamon Hill Station

Kerala is the most beautiful piece of land on earth and it has been coined as 'God's own country'. The place seems as if God truly exists there. Known as the 'Scotland of Asia', Vagamon is perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway. Not too popular among the tourists yet, this striking hill station filled with luscious meadows, enchanting pine forests and cascading waterfalls is almost always shrouded in mist. Vagamon also called Wagamon is located on the western fringe of Idukki situated at the elevation of 1,100 m above sea level. The early planters cleared the mountain range for the cultivation of tea and coffee in Vagamon, which has rendered a distinct natural charm to the hills here.
