Vagamon

Vagamon, a peaceful and one of the must visit hill stations in Kerala, nestled in the Idukki district, is often referred to as the “Switzerland of Kerala” due to its breathtaking landscapes and cool climate. This picturesque destination is a perfect retreat for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts alike.

 

The lush green meadows, cascading waterfalls, and misty valleys of Vagamon make it a paradise for those seeking tranquility and natural beauty. The cool climate throughout the year adds to the charm of this hill station, making it an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. One of the main reasons why Vagamon is compared to Switzerland is its striking resemblance to the Swiss landscapes with rolling hills, pine forests, and meandering streams. The verdant hills dotted with tea gardens create stunning views of the Western Ghats.

 

The Thangal Para viewpoint is another must-visit spot in Vagamon, offering panoramic views of the entire hill station and its surroundings. The viewpoint is named after Sheikh Fariduddin Baba, a Sufi saint whose tomb is located nearby.

 

The Vagamon Orchidarium and Floriculture Project is a unique attraction that showcases a wide variety of orchids and other exotic flowers. Visitors can stroll through the beautifully landscaped gardens and learn about different species of flowers cultivated here.
