Vagamon Adventure Camp Tour 1N/2D
Vagamon was used by the British for tea plantations and they were followed by Christian missionaries who built their abode of service at Kurisumala in Vagamon. National Geographic Traveler has listed Vagamon on their directory of the "50 most attractive places to visit in India"Still untouched by commercialisation, the sleepy town is surrounded by valleys, green meadows, pine forests, mists, fogs, tea estates, waterfalls and overall greenery. The landscape is mostly hilly bald with green meadows. Vagamon is also home to a variety of flowers and orchids. Three hills - Murugan, Thangal and Kurisumala hills - are the representation of the chief religions in Kerala, i.e. Hindu, Muslim, and Christian which represent the cultural harmony. Vagamon has potential for trekking, paragliding, mountaineering and rock climbing.

On the way, visit the famous natural scenic place of Parunthunpara, which is a small village, located between Peerumade and Thekkady. The word “parunth” in the local language means Eagle and “para” means rock. It is called Parunthumpara or eagle rock because of a large area that looks like an eagle.
