About the campsite
Camping is an activity that takes you as far away from civilization & as close to nature as possible. Camp above the clouds - Vagamon does exactly that. It takes you right out of your cubicles, hectic city life, mundane routine and puts you right into Nature’s wonderland called Vagamon.

Vagamon, also called the Scotland of Asia is a gorgeous little hill station located in Idukki district of Kerala. With people frequenting even tiniest of the hill stations around us Vagamon comes as a breath of fresh air that still remains untouched.

Offering breathtaking views of the Western Ghats & the valley below; wake up within the idyllic serenity of the distant mountains & surreal sight of clouds below you. Situated 1:30 hours away from Kumily, you can spend your days exploring the nature trails leading to virgin streams or simply relax with a book as you soak up the fresh mountain air and tranquility of woods. - It’s a paradise for nature lovers.

These guys already have all good reviews no doubt about it, it's absolutely well organised camping nothing went wrong even if, they have plan B, plan C. We traveled with 2.5 yr old kid to Vagamon camp. Such a great gift I can give it to my young traveler. He enjoyed star gazing, tent stay, playing in water and what not. They took personal care of each one when my kid wants to use loo the camp organizer drove us to toilet at the base camp 10 min away from where we stayed. If you are thinking of a different travel experience. Don't have any second thoughts. Just opt for Exoticamp.

For someone who doesn’t even commute by public transport, the idea of Camping, sleeping inside a tent, travelling by a sleeper bus sounded like a recurring nightmare. But that particular weekend trip to Vagamon via Exoticamp literally changed my perception. Well, if staring into the dark sky & counting the number of stars or realising that you are just a thin sheet away from getting drenched in the thunderous rain doesn’t bring you closer to nature, I don’t know what else would. Hanging around with Complete strangers, sharing midnight maggi with them, acting brave but literally peeing inside listening to 3 am ghost stories are experiences which you can NEVER get it anywhere except Exoticamp and I am glad I broke up with my inhibitions and chose to try them out. I am eyeing on their beach camp next so edra vandiyaaaaaaa!

We all had great fun at their vagamon camp. It's rare that a camping experience caters to the need of all age groups. It was very well organized and safe. Kudos exoticamp! Keep up the good work! :) Looking forward to more such trips with you :D
