  • A wonderful scenic beauty. But, Strictly visit during November to January to enjoy and relish it's magic. Valley where movie shootings being carried out. Waterfalls which gives you pleasant surprise. Coffee museum that gives a great aroma. Tribal museum gives a grand history of tribals
  • A truly heart filling destination worth going to atleast once in lifetime. The lush greenery and the untouched beauty of the hills is something that calls upon travellers to this wonderful destination. It was an amazing experience, passing through lush green mountains and valleys, rivers and brooks along the way. There are pit stops along the way where you can indulge in some kebab or bamboo chicken served on the roadside for dirt cheap prices. The ride into Araku is excellent, while the valley itself is a little underwhelming. Maybe it was because of winter, but everything was dry and quiet. There is not much to do in the name of activity, so you can check out some waterfalls and the Borra Caves along the way. Araku is a quiet town, with little in the name of shops of sights, or even places to eat for that matter and it would be best to chose a nice resort and stick to activities within. However, I would recommend this trip for the road trip alone, the roads are in good condition and navigation is not difficult, google maps is pretty accurate, and just enjoy the sights and sounds along the way.
  • Awesome...Simply loved the place. It's an ideal destination for nature lovers. A photographer's paradise. No wonder that the its a popular outdoor location of the South Indian film producers.
  • Very beautiful. Famous for its landscapes. From October last week till end of November yellow flower fields are feast to eyes. You can see tribal life and their traditions, weekly shandies.
  • Excellent tourist destination near to Vizag with lot of valleys. Best place for weekends... One day tour is more than enough to see most of the view points

Where to stay in Visakhapatnam

A cluster of simple hotels and guesthouses sit in the inland center just south of the airport in Visakhapatnam. To the north of the airport, Highway 39 offers a smattering of accommodations, providing convenient access to some of the region's key natural sites. However, the main bulk of accommodations in Visakhapatnam lie closer to the coast, east of the airport. Here you'll find selections of chain hotels and family-run guesthouses situated by the main inland parks and commercial areas, as well as a number of resorts and hotels down by the beach.
