Your life surely needs some freshness and all you need is to escape into the jungle trails!  Trek along the river as it flows through the lush green grasslands of Vagamon near Kottayam. This would be a perfect weekend getaway for those who are looking to find bliss amidst nature. Experience the thrill of walking deep inside the Western Ghat forests where the clouds would accompany you till the end, and if you are lucky – you’ll get a chance to get drenched!

A pristine hill station with virgin glory, Vagamon lies in the Idduki District of Kerala with certain areas coming under the Kottayam District as well. In spite of having a beautiful series of hillocks, valleys, and cascading waterfalls, this place isn’t visited by many, and that’s what makes this place even more special. It would be the ideal destination for you if you are planning to ditch the lousy crowd!
