Travel and Accommodation

Reaching Vagamon

Vagamon is a hill station located in Idukki district of Kerala, 101 Km from Kochi.

Road: Vagamon is well connected by roads with the rest of the state.

Rail: The nearest city railway station is Kottayam, located at a distance of 60 Km from Vagamon.  However, no transport will be arranged by the organisers from Kottayam to Vagamon.  For runners interested in availing the transport facility provided by the organisers, please ensure that you disembark at Ernakulam Junction or Ernakulam Town railway station(s).

Air: The Kochi International Airport at Nedumbassery has flights from all over the world coming in. You will find no problem in flying in.


Although we don't have the bandwidth and the expertise to provide a travel package, we understand that participants would like to get their travel and accommodation requirements handled by people who know best about the location.  The arrangements will be to the best of our ability and might lack the professionalism offered by a premium Tour Operator, but all packages are on cost-basis. So, this year, we wish to give you three options from a travel and accommodation point of view.  The Options are:-

This package doesn't include accommodation and only includes:

Runners, who have opted for the transport facility provided by the organisers, are required to be present at the Hotel Sree Abhirami, Koonamthai, Edapally by 11:30 AM (latest) on 05th January 2024.  All buses arranged by the organisers to the event location will leave from Hotel Sree Abhirami at 12:30 PM on 05th January 2024.  Do note that Hotel Sree Abhirami is located at approximately 21 Km from the Kochi International Airport at Nedumbassery; at a distance of 9 Km from Ernakulam Junction Railway Station; and at a distance of 8 Km from Ernakulam Town Railway Station.

After the event, the buses plying the runners who have opted for the transport facility provided by the organisers, will leave Vagamon on 07th January 2024 at 07:00 AM to Hotel Sree Abhirami located at Koonamthai, Edapally.  We estimate that the buses will reach Edapally in 5 hours. Runners are requested to plan their onward journey from Kochi accordingly.  Outstation runners who need accommodation in Kochi are required to arrange their stay accordingly.  We recommend The Metro Pod - Backpackers hotel
