Kailasa Giri, Visakhapatnam

4.4
#2 of 64 in Parks in Andhra Pradesh
Escape the bustle of the city at Kailasa Giri, a large hilltop park brimming with tropical plant life. From many spots in the park, you can admire sweeping views of surrounding beaches, forests, and the city itself. If less-fit visitors have trouble climbing the hill, consider taking the cable car to the top instead. Children will enjoy the swings and the toy train that rolls around the hill during the day. Take your own food to have a picnic, or grab a local snack from the onsite food vendors.

  • This place is located on a hill. The view of city and beach is just awesome. There is a toy train ride also which is worth the price if you are travelling with children (my kid enjoyed a lot).  more »

  • It’s the great place to spend some time and enjoy some cool breeze. It is well maintained and there is everything we need on the top of mountain. Food, Parks, amusements, View points, children play arena, picnic spots, shopping etc. You can reach the top by stairs (2500-3000 steps) or by rope way which is very affordable at 90 for adults and 40 for children’s for to and fro. View points are amazing and you get to see the city, mountains and beaches. Hope you enjoy your time over there. If this review is helpful please hit on like.
  • Nice place for outing with family and friends. Lot of events and activities also available for kids also. Very photogenic place. The view from the top is simply superb. Toy train ride, the 3D shows and the rope way ride are worth enjoying.
  • Should be one of the primary location on your itinerary, if you are visiting Vizag. Main attractions are: -You get many awesome viewpoints of the beaches from the hill. The AP Tourism has marked few such viewpoints which are quite easy to notice. -Another main attraction is the rope-way that connects from the top to middle of the hill. -The landmark of this place is a two large deity statues located at top of the hill. Apart from these, there are few other small things to check over there.
  • A very good place for visiting with family with family, if you have kids they'll be very happy as many types of games are there for them but they are not maintaining it well as days are passing the train that goes around the park for the view is also a good reason for going there but the management is rather not good in case of that many people had to go by standing and moreover the ticket prices are rapidly increasing before it was Rs50/- for adults & Rs25/- for kids (before six months when I visited there) , presently it was Rs75/- for adults & Rs50/-for kids in Non-AC . Overall a good place with the Titanic View point & loads of couple visit there and the places to sit is very large crossing the mountains!
  • A good scenic place close to the city and very clean maintenance for the amount of tourist crowd. Has eateries for snacking and is ok. Very crowded during public holidays and better to avoid. Even parking will be a havoc with such crowds. View points are not very exciting as it's feels you just on a hillock middle of a city. Will have a good view if the sea and beach line.

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.
