Plan it during Summer if planning to escape hot summer for a while (Janata near Visakhapatnam ) . Winter would also be great as the greens have a lot to offer. Cycling would be rewarding, hold on , you need it wake up early. When you visit the water bodies do a little study of the climate, being careful is... More

We were about 10 people and visited this during summer and thoroughly enjoyed it. It does take some driving to get there and phones dont work on the way. Once we got there, the weather cooled down and we had a great time visiting the various sites aroud here.

The best tourist spot to visit along with family with full off greenery but due to hudhud most of the greenery was washed away but still the best place to visit along with family.

Although Araku is a nice place, however the... More

Do visit during Winter session. Ensure to take bus ride either while going to or coming from Araku. The road journey will definitely give you a good memory.

come out from concrete jungle, Enjoy nature... Suggest you to come here by Train, at least till "Borra Caves", from there you can get some travel packages(APSTDC) / buses / Taxis to reach Araku by road. Good experience to travel in eastern ghats by road....
