Climate In Vagamon
By virtue of its establishment on a high altitude, the city experiences tropical-like climatic conditions. Weather in Vagamon is extremely pleasant and welcoming throughout the year. Although, it is advised to avoid the city during extreme monsoons as the heavy rainfall makes it difficult to travel around the city. Like any other high-altitude hill station, Vagamon is also prone to landslides when an extreme monsoon hits the city. Before planning for any adventure activities like trekking or camping, it is always better to check the weather conditions beforehand. Weather patterns can sometimes be unpredictable. One should definitely carry rainfall essentials including waterproof bag, raincoats, umbrellas, and all the other necessary items.
Dry seasons are the best months to visit the city and witness the flourishing flora of Vagamon. March to May are the summer months and experience pleasing warm weather with a cool breeze. Carrying linen clothing or other light materials is sufficient during these months. While October to February are a bit colder months and the temperature might drop to zero degrees Celsius when extreme winters prevail. It is recommended that travelers should carry heavy winter clothing if traveling during the winter season.

Trip to VagamonIt was a good experience with Travel Values. However, the credit goes to Travel Triangle to connect me with Travel Values. We reached at Kochi for our 4N5D Honeymoon trip on 1st Oct'19 and we met Firoz bhai (driver). He was brilliant. Thanks to my agent. We had enjoyed a lot, exceeded our expectations. We can't tell so much as we felt there.
Trip to VagamonVery poor service provider, the agent booked and when driver came he only dropped us at hotel....not a single point seen by him......booking 35k package without flight.....we had to book auto to visit in rameshwaram, ....driver did everything like his mood....no window will open.....no visit....infact the behaviour is also rude.....before making payment agent is picking my call.....after payment.....whole 2 days I tried to call but he didn't picked.....nor solved my problems....or ask driver nythng...pathetic service from guruji travels.......don't believe them....don't book with them.....not recommended plzz
Trip to VagamonHotels - Kovalam Hotel Ocean Bay was the bad experience. It was too unhygienic , unhygienic breakfast and washrooms , not good breakfast. Allepey Houseboat - House experience was worst. The only good part was our cook otherwise nothing was happening their. Firstly we were picked up late by 30 mins after waiting , cruise driver was so irresponsible he stopped the cruise at dot 5 PM and left for his home ,we hardly enjoyed cruise ride, TV was not working , washrooms were dirty, rooms were suffocating and stinking .In the morning we checked out early and have to pay auto charges on our own to have drop at the drivers pick up point as cruise driver was unavailable. Ideally drop should have been arranged by cruise team. As per the itinerary, we were supposed to have candle light dinner but no arrangements were done for it. We just spent one day their without any memories and enjoyment. Kochi, Munnar and Tekkady hotels were good and as per our expectations. We will rate them 4* as per the services and hospitality provided. Ocean Bay Resort will be rated as 2* and Butterfly Cruise which was arranged for us as 1*. Driver friendliness and proper guidance and support throughout the trip. He made our journey happening.
Trip to VagamonAll arrangements were good but the Hotel at both places were not up to mark life 3 ***.The standard of the Hotels to be improved. Overall the trip was memorable.

Trip to Vagamon1. It was a Nice trip....thank you Ankit (Maxis Holidays). According to the itinerary, everything was good except, Cherai beach & Service at Hotel Mare Blue resort at Cherai not good. 2. The Houseboat experience was excellent. Houseboat staff behavior excellent. The food quality also was good. 3. The driver's behavior was not good on the first day. The driver was list bothered for showing sites to us as per itinerary, he was more interested in paid sites as per him choice (someplace was skipped), he has improved after we talked to the vehicle's agent along with Maxis agent. 4. In the future, we want to travel abroad with very good hospitality & the best cost.
Trip to VagamonIt is very nice trip arrangement Thank u very much kirti Mam. Mr Jithesh Driver safely and good driving
Trip to VagamonHouse boat is basic just basic even the honeymoon inclusions just sucks. Candle light dinner means they just keep one deepa with oil in middle of a room. Cake means they have got a plum cake from a normal bakery without a name or mention on it. So house boat is just an average experience but remaining hotels are good in ambience. Food is not so great in spice jungle it is just average. Should also mention about the driver assigned to us. He doesn't know itenarary, he doesn't know who will pay for him. This shows a bad co co ordination between driver, his representative and our holiday agent. I pushed him alot to make him drive to the places that are there in the plan. Overall it's just an average experience with travel triangle. Not so great. Could be definitely a better one if they handled it in a better manner. Munnar is the best. Elephant camp in thekkady is also a memorable one. Jungle cruise is just time waste. Houseboat is new but not a great experience
Trip to VagamonI had recently booked a family trip to Munnar from SK Holidays. Take my word, don't go by the number of reviews they have or the rating they have. Just book with them. The officials are extremely helpful. Both Khushbu and Shobit have been very helpful in arranging and planning the entire trip very well. The package and quote they provide is the best compared to all other agents. Everything was arranged perfectly. Definitely allow SK Holidays to plan your trip. They are too good. Thanks again to Khushbu and Shobit :)
