Honestly Araku has nothing much to offer. We visited Bora Bora Caves and from there proceeded to Araku There is a good tribal museum with statues made from clay and coffee plantation. We finished the araku trip in 3-4 hours

A place which should be on your bucket list when you visit Andhra Pradesh. The beauty of the place is mesmerizing. Make sure you visit this place and all the other places in and around it. The Burra Caves, tea gardens and many more such enthralling places must be visited. Do not miss the traditional folk dance of the tribals... More
