Wagamon (also spelled Vagamon) is known for the vast green meadows and the beautiful Pine forest. The suitable weather conditions and ambience makes Wagamon a great Paragliding Spot too. Annual Paragliding Grandprixs are held at the Wagamon hills by ASSTA (Adventure Sports & Sustainable Tourism Academy) in partnership with Kerala Tourism Development Council. The event gifted Kerala Tourism, "the most innovative tourism activity" of the year 2008.
Though the place isn't a full fledged tourist spot or hill station with not much facilities for boarding, the place is simply great for a single day visit.
Not many options, although few are coming up these days. It is a good option if you can carry your own food. There are few tea shops in the village center. There are couple of cottages in the nearby hills, where you can stay, also get food but it takes a long time as they start cooking only on receiving your orders. Once there, you may want to try their Halwa Poori, despite it is not a specific speciality of Wagamon.
