Location Map

Vagamon (located in Kerala: India) is a serene and peaceful place that is ideal for those seeking respite from city life. It will certainly reconnect you with nature, being surrounded by hillsides and mountains, pine forests and beautiful cascading waterfalls. (One of the strong points of Kerala is that it is one of the lesser known tourist destinations in this region). The climate is also pleasant and mild and there are many lovely sights to see such as tea plantations, green meadows and breathtaking scenery where the fog rolls in off the hills. For the more adventurous folk there are ample opportunities for trekking and mountaineering which you can enjoy to your hearts content. Also expect to see wildlife sanctuaries and plenty of flora and fauna when you are out and about.

Vagamon does not have a long history to boast of as it remained unexplored for centuries. Though the British had plantations here, it was only in 1926, when Walter Duncan and Company started their tea plantations, that it became well-known. In the 1930s, more tea plantations were set up in the area. After 1940 people from Travancore, mostly from southern Travancore, and people from Madras (Tamil Nadu), migrated to Vagamon. Later, after the formation of Kerala State, people from various parts of Kerala migrated there.
