Vagamon hill station in Idukki is among the few spots on the planet that need to be experienced first-hand to truly discover its glory. The grassy hills, velvet lawns and overall mysticism of the place cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. This quaint town lies untouched by any modern influences and is neatly tucked away in Idukki district. Visitors can avail many activities including trekking, paragliding, mountaineering and rock climbing. People love travelling across a chain of three famous hills: Thangal, Murugan and Kurisumala. These are important to Hindus, Muslims and Christians, respectively, and are a perfect example of the communal harmony prevalent in the place. While the Kurisumala Hill is a popular hill station and is a spiritual centre for Catholics, Thangal Hill, the burial chamber of Sheikh Fariduddin makes it a popular pilgrimage centre for Muslims. The Murugan Hill is devoted to Hindu God Murugan, the son of Lord Shiva.
