Vagamon Heights Resort

Vagamon Heights is situated on the new hill highway connecting Cochin-Thekkady-Kodaikanal. Major tourist centers like Kumarakom, Thekkady, Munnar and Kodaikanal are easily accessible from Vagamon. Secluded from the outside world and situated at about 3500 feet above sea level, Vagamon is where nature comes to its colourful best. A tiny plantation township in central Travancore, Vagamon has an overtone of green. With a never ending line of lush green hills, breathtaking ravines and meandering rivulets.

Tucked away among hillocks on the Western Ghats, Vagamon is verdant foliage territory, where you could laze around for weeks without a soul bothering you. Not many have explored Vagamon. Nearly a century ago, the English chanced up on this land and set up plantations here; followed by Christian missionaries who built here their abode of service. Since then Vagamon remained untouched by explorers and tourists.
