Vagamon: Perfect Place to Cool your Heels
In the midst of tea gardens and hills all around, Vagamon is a delightful hill station and a favourite for trekking. Situated at a height of 1100 metres above sea level, the hill station has to be experienced, not read about.
Vagamon is part of the country's ecotourism project. With green hills all around, lush velvety lawns and the cool mountain breezes, Vagamon is a perfect getaway for city-dwellers. The hill station is well-known for its Indian brand of Christianity which can be witnessed at the small church on top of the Kurisumala hill with its monastery for Christian ascetics. These monks follow the Christian faith along Indian spiritual traditions and Gandhian thought. The dairy farm managed by the Kurisumala monks is a must visit. The other tourist attractions around Vagamon are the Bird Sanctuary at Kumarakom and the hill resorts at Munnar and Kodaikanal.
