Very green and pleasant place. The journey by train from Vizag to Araku Valley also must not be missed to get the total pleasure of this awesome place. Great views to explore and relax. The APTDC stay at Haritha resorts is also quite fine to stay and relax.

Looks over commercialising. Place should have been better organised so that the natural beauty is preserved. The roads leading to the place should have sign boards for direction.

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.
