The Ethereal Vagamon Pine Forests

The famous Vagamon Pine Forests at the edge of the Western Ghats in the Kottayam district of Kerala, a stunning rarity for a tropical place as Kerala. The forest is a valley full of acres of lofty pine trees growing on steep edges, which look out over the edge of a cliff. The place has an ethereal feeling, especially since it is not crowded at all. Vagamon is a hill station where the average temperature is around 15 degrees Celsius even during the summer time, at an altitude of 1000 m above sea level. The Pine Forest is just one attraction of the place. Vagamon is one of the starting points of the high ranges of Kerala and its famous tea estates.
