As part of Travel – Landscape photography, here is the beautiful photo story on landscapes of Wagamon – Kerala.
Beauty behind the hills – Wagamon
I am a traveller because I love being on the road. They give us a lot of memories. Behind every journey there is a goal and the moment we get to our goal we experience success in our lives. One such place I went in the recent past is Wagamon. The main reason I got attracted to this particular place is the beauty behind the hills. I am such a person who loves adventure and hence hills. Life is just like hilltops because in order to reach the top we have to undergo a lot of hard work. What I am trying to convey here are the memories and the frames I captured during my journey. Wagamon is located at about 40 kms from Kottayam at the border of Idukki. The climate here is cold. Everyday hundreds of tourists visit this place. The magnetic factor here is the presence of hill chains and one among the most important is Uluppuni.
Pine forests and the water falls.
One who comes to visit Wagamon has to take a view as this place. The jeep safari between the hill chains is itself adventurous. Same is the case with tea plantations. This also adds to a major reason for tourist attraction. Other factors that’s eye catching are the pine forests and the water fall. A walk through the misty pine forest is a worth lifelong experience. The view from the top of the mountain is very pleasing for the eyes. The clouds that flow along the slants of the hills create a much better ambience that anything could ever give us. Another major attraction is the boat ride in the Wagamon Lake. One such ride engraves a permanent image in one’s eyes. Thangal hills is another must visit spot here. The moment I stood on the top it was like the heaven on earth.
