Araku Valley. A beautiful place to visit.Araku is a tribal hill area in the Visakhapatnam District of Andhra Pradesh. It is about 100 km from Visakhapatnam. It is located at an altitude of 911 metres above sea level.
This hill station is a very famous tourist spot. There are waterfalls, Coffee gardens and many famous flower gardens. Borra caves is also a place nearby. There are good hotels and restaurants available in this place and a night stay here will be very pleasant. AP tourism buses are also available.
There are buses to this place from Visakhapatnam and there are trains also. The best way is to hire a taxi from Visakhapatnam and start early in the morning and visit on the way Borra caves, waterfalls, and coffee gardens and reach Araku in the evening. Having a night stay there and the next day you can visit all the gardens around the valley and reach back by evening back to Visakhapatnam.
I visited this place on Saturday and Sunday. The best season to visit is from October to January of the year.
