    A lovely place to visit. One should visit the place by train. On the way to Araku from Visakhapatnam, there are so many tunnels. Amazing work to construct and maintain this incredible train line. Special food is 'Bamboo Chicken'. In you love chicken then talk to the guides, they will take you to the shops. Traditional dancers are ready to entertain you with their music...

    There are 48 tunnel in the train root from Visakhapatnam to Araku Valley, which is perhaps unique in the World. The legend has that valley derived its name from a medicine for stomach. Even today the medicine is still being given here. Many types of tribe lives in this valley.The ITDA is managed with protection and preservation of Tribal culture, promotion and betterment of their life style. Coffee Plantation is the another attraction for tourists of Araku Valley.
