An off-road trip through the rocky forest will definitely thrill the adventure enthusiast in you. The soothing sound of pristine waterfalls welcomes you to the unending exuberance of misty hills, green pastures, unique flora and fauna and huge rocks. The light drizzle and the soothing breeze accompany you all the way to Urumbikkara.
Urumbikkara is surrounded by Azhutha Block towards East , Erattupetta Block towards west , Vazhoor Block towards west, Ranni Block towards South.
Vagamon, also spelt Wagamon, is an Indian hill station town primarily located in Peerumade taluk of Idukki district (majority area including Vagamon town), and also Meenachil taluk and Kanjirappally taluk of Kottayam district in the state of Kerala, India.
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"
