Rapture in a tea cup: A trip to vagamon

Vagamon is not just any other verdant spot. It is an exciting blend of religious mysticism and European legacy. A very ideal tourist spot surrounded by the greenery of tea gardens, beautiful meadows, deep puzzling valleys and dales. Vagamon situated at an elevation of 1100 metres above sea level is a trekker's paradise.

Vagamon's charm is worth experiencing and is indeed one of the must see places for tourists. One speciality of Vagamon is that you will never get tired of Vagamon as each day or visit will display the varied moods of nature and climatic differences; the mist you can touch, the rain drops, the gentle breeze or the golden hue in December-January which will be greatly rewarding and soothing for you and that can romanticize your mind and thoughts. You can easily be humbled by nature and its a not -so- completely -lost pristine condition here. The trees and shrubs in Vagamon give it an added attraction.

Vagamon Hillocks
