The Lush, Green Rolling Vagamon Hills!

The Lush, Green Rolling Vagamon Hills!

A small part of the rolling green hills of Vagamon, Kottayam district, Kerala. Vagamon is a locally famous hill-station tourist destination (though not much known outside Kerala) with green meadows covering bald hills (motta kunnu), pine forests and tea estates. The hills are especially famous. You need to drive up a mountainside from Erattupetta and Teekoy (69 km east from Kottayam) to get to Vagamon. Thankfully the place is still not commercialized. Vagamon gets covered by mist and fog quite quickly, in the afternoons like the time when this photo was taken from Vagamon view point looking at the valley below. Vagamon is also the starting point of the highranges.
