“A must visit if you want to see the coffee and black pepper plantations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

A somber and serene place in the midst of the jungles of the Eastern Ghats, this place is well known for its coffee plantations. I was there to see the coffee plantations and as a bonus I even saw black pepper plants in the coffee plantations, never saw one - green black peppers hanging from the creepers, also plenty of oak trees around. A wonderful place to be in and taste some really good local coffee.

“Unspoilt beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

On the way from Vizag to Araku Valley, Anantagiri is a natural beauty. There is coffee plantation. The ghat road, the coffe plantation, the pepper creepers and the playful monkeys surely soothes our eyes and mind. The APTDC run Haritha is a beautiful option to stay. The small stream culminating into Tatiguda falls is a nice place to visit nearby. Don't miss the million years old Borra Cavs and the virgin Katiki waterfalls some 15-20km away. Try the fabulous 'Bamboo Chicken'.

“Be a part of nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Anantagiri is a very good scenic location. On the way to Araku and AP Tourism has constructed resorts. Excellent location to stay and observe the nature. Food is good. Bonfire can be arranged by the resort staff in the night. Best time to visit is from Nov to Mar. Resorts are well maintained. We should have our own transport to see the other places around. Don't miss the water falls.
