Vagamon- The hidden hill town of Kerala
Nov 2019
When people talk about hills in Kerala, they generally mention Munnar, Thekkady or even Wayanad, but we rarely hear the name Vagamon. A small town, in idukki district, Vagamon or Wagamon, is a hidden gem of Kerala and one you must travel to, specially on a road trip or with friends. With picturesque trails, hikes, waterfalls & off-roading, this hill station has something for everyone but at the heart of it all, just pure nature in it's prime.

Holy trekking experience
Jul 2019
Kurushumala hills is a Christian pilgrimage center in Vagamon. Apart fro that, this is also an excellent trekking site in Vagamon. The hike starts at Kallillakavala (Kurisumala base). As you trek up, there are 14 crosses (known as 'Way of the cross') at regular intervals on the hill. There is a small church on top.

The trek is a bit hard and is not for those with health problems. But the view form the top is unbeatable. The cool breeze atop will take away all the tiredness.

Near the hills there is an ashram, home of Christian monks and a dairy farm managed by the monks.

The place is frequented by tourists all through the year. On Good Friday and Easter season many followers do the trek up Kurusumala carrying wooden cross as a pilgrimage.

Good place to visit

There's a 115 years old small church on the top of a rocky hill. We have to climb the hill for about 1.5 kms to reach the top.

There are no steps to climb the rocks. So it's not advisable for senior citizens to visit this place.

Surrounding sceneries are breathtaking are worth to watch. Those who have stamina can try climbing the hill top. For young guys it is worth a try in the morning hours. Near to this there are few more viewing points and hills for viewing the beautiful greeneries. Windy during our visit. So it is advisable to have some warm clothing during December trip.

Not recommended for Family with elderly or toddlers
Nov 2019 • Friends
The mountains are too step and doesn't have any steps to climb. Highly not recommended for family with elderly people or with toddlers who can't climb. It has close to 7 stops on the way while climbing and the wind is too harsh. Be careful while descending.

Most beautiful place which I recently visited
Aug 2019 • Couples
We were doubtful if we should go there or not as we were tired after seeing so many places. But if we had come back without going there that would have been the biggest regret. We didn't know the way from half way we decided to go back. Finally we went ahead. When we reached the destination all of a sudden it was covered with mist and couldn't see anything ahead. Beautiful place.
