the most interesting thing I found at Araku Valley was the Coffee house where you have a coffee museum too and one can get some good coffee to drink and tastefully done shop where the history of coffee is displayed. This located next to the tribal museum and the bus stand.

This place was nice and sombre and typical holiday and picnic spot for a family. With the rivers of course it was more exciting but actually there isn't much to visit.

A good hill station for beach city like vishakapatnam . Bora Caves is good place to look around . Nothing much other than that . Climate is good .Travelling by train is also worth it.

Avoid Araku valley. its just an overhyped place with nothing much to offer you. if you like to see coffee plantations then you may. overcrowded no decent hotels to stay. except for the tourism anantagiri cottages.

In Araku, a must thing to do is to catch a pure looking face of a tribes girl in Araku valley. Seeing their face in those mountainous valley in person is priceless, trust me.

We drove to Araku Valley. The drive was awesome. It is a silent place where you talk to Nature. Rejuvenating experience.
