Greetings from Oak Gardens, Vagamon!

We would like to introduce our nature friendly resort Oak Gardens at Vazhikadavu near Vagamon. Our resort is acknowledged generally as a residential paradise in Vagamon and ideally located in a very suitable place for a peaceful stay. 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. We are located at the entrance of Kurisumala in Vagamon. National Geographic Traveler has listed Vagamon on their directory of the “50 most attractive places to visit in India.

Vagamon is also spelt Wagamon, is a hill station and a tourist destination in Kerala, having immense potentials to explore tourism as a favourite destination among domestic and international tourists located in Meenachil taluk and Kanjirappally taluk of Kottayam district and Peerumade taluk of Idukki district of the state of Kerala, India.Vagamon has a cool climate, with the temperature between 10 and 23 °C during a summer midday.

The road to Vagamon from Erattupetta (Erattupetta is also known as the gateway of Malanadu) opened an easily accessible and direct route to Vagamon from the plains. This road, which was constructed in the 1950s, was an engineering marvel and is rated a state highway. The road was made in treacherous and dizzying terrain under the initiative and leadership of Acharya Francis who established the Kurisumala Ashramam. About a dozen workers died during the construction at the hanging cliffs, and a 20-foot-tall memorial tower stands in honour of those who gave their life for this road project at the beginning of the road in Teekoy town junction.
