Kailasagiri has always been a go-to place for me ever since my first visit to vizag back in 2012. Its a fun place for all age groups as it offers u a cable car ride to n from in a very reasonable price. Once ur on the mountain top u have the options for fun activities like horse back riding or a toy train ride around the hill or munching on to your favourite snack in the small shacks or just wonder around n explore the hill top on foot(my fav). It offers u a mesmerising view from every corner and one can just fall in love wid the views of vizag from here. One can see the amazing shorelines n the snaky roads which go along the shorelines as well as appreciate the beautiful lush green slopes of the adjacent hills. You can also offer your prayers to Lord Shiva n Goddess Parvati (Hindu God n Goddess respectively) as we have huge statues of them right at the hill top.
All in all its a very amazing place to hangout in the evening be it wid friends or family or as a couple.

Kailasagiri is one of the prime attractions and a popular picnic spot for all the tourists visiting the beautiful city of Vizag.
It is one of the prominent hill top parks with panoramic sea view on the East Coast. The major attraction of Kailasagiri is the 40 feet tall statue of Shiva and Parvathi. Kailasagiri derives its name from this statue depicting the abode of Lord Shiva and Parvathi. One can view the entire city of Visakhapatnam from the top of this Eco-Rich hill.Located on a picturesque hill with enchanting panoramic sea view, Kailasagiri is really an outstanding tourist spots in Andhra Pradesh. It is the Queen among the tourist locations in the City of Destiny. The hill park developed by VMRDA covers 380 acres of land with exciting landscape gardens

Besides the eye-catching and holy statues of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi, the hilltop has many wonderful attractions like the Titanic viewpoint, floral clock, Shanku-Chakra Namas of Lord Venkateswara of Tirupati, Gliding point, delicious food courts and so on.
Another remarkable attraction popular here is Rope way. The experience of taking a ropeway while enjoying the breathtaking view of the city is something that everyone should cherish.

There is Shanti Ashram on the top of the hill, where one can earn lots of peace to their body and mind by spending time in meditation.

The "Kailasagiri Park", which has been developed over an area approx. 380 acres and at the height of approx. 570 feet at Kailasagiri Hills in Visakhapatnam, is a unique gift given to the city. A cable car ride can be enjoyed to reach the park. The view of the city, the road and the sea while going up by cable car is spectacular. One can also go by road to reach this park developed on the top of the hill.

As soon as you enter the park, you see a 40 feet tall white statue of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. There are staircases with shiny railings built on both sides to reach the huge statue on a high platform and the flowery stairway are there between the two staircases, the view is astonishing for any tourist. When you reach the park by cable car, you come across a railway track first and a small but very “real railway station” like railway station built there.

There is a toy train there which runs around the park and you can enjoy the train ride as well as the park and the amazing view. This option of joy ride was fun there. We opted for AC coach. Sitting in the train, sometimes passing through narrow bushes and sometimes looking at the artifacts in the park and sometimes getting lost in the spectacular views was an awesome experience. Seeing such a large park in about half an hour without fatigue with the help of this toy train is a wonder.

There are entertainment options like dinosaur’s replica, swings and power cricket as well as a Lord Shiva temple, floral clock and some other attractions. Do not forget to visit Kailasagiri Park whenever you are in Visakhapatnam. This park is open seven days a week from 10 am to 8 pm.

We were constrained with time and our Coordinator asked us to complete it in half an hour. How can we do it when the train trip alone takes 20 minutes!

Anyhow, we just rushed through. The tall Siva Parvati idols are majestic. Had a look at the toy train without entering into it. Tried to look at the bird's view of Vizag.

Kailasagiri is boldly written on this hill top and one can see it from miles away.

Worth visiting this place leisurely enjoying the 360 Deg bird's view of Visakhapatnam!

No trip to Vizag would be complete without a trip to Kailashgiri. Especially my little niece loved riding the toy train round the hill top. The view point above the bay will leave you in awe and the twin marble statues of Shivji and Parvati are a sight to behold.

If you come to Vizag this is a place you have to visit. It's a reasonably well maintained public park with a great bird's eye view of the wonderful beaches below from the Kailash giri hills above. The toy train ride is a must and there are AC coaches also to beat the heat. With the available snacks and popcorn s, kids and even adults enjoy the joyride where you can visualise the entire city Vishakhapatnam with the tallest building s as well as the serene beaches

Tha mountain just opposite to a beautiful beach with multiple options to go above, i.e. By road, by Ropeway, by hiking etc..... After reaching at top it provides a beautiful bird eye view of the Vizag city along with the top view of long curved Beach with the parellal road. The huge statue of Shri Shiv and Parvati is the top attraction and selfie point for the tourists. This place is well managed and developed by the authorities. The toy train is also one of the attraction along with park and food joints.
It's one of the best happening place to visit and enjoy the evening.

Out of the world must see place for all who visit Vizag. And the train is also a very good addition to get an aerial view. It's one of its kind place.

We only faced a problem with a photographer who promised and then wanted to charge triple the amount thinking as tourists we will pay anything he demands.

There is nobody to monitor these freelancers

The city view and the view of Rushikonda beach from the top is mesmerising but very disappointed with the way it is maintained. Lack of proper view points , Lack of cleanliness. That train service on top is a waste of money. You can spot all the garbages while on the ride and that was absolutely disgusting. Bottom line it is a beautiful location that lacks modernisation and maintenance. Hope they can make it world class some day because the location has potential.

A beautiful hill station with an amazing view . Once you arrive there you can have a ticket for the rope way to go up ( with a ticket cost of 70 rupees per person) if you don't want to get exhausted by walking up.
At the top you will be welcomed by the cool mountain breeze and an amazing sea and mountain view. There is a train service around the mountain top for 30 minutes to see around ( which will cost you 70 rupees ). And you can have some quite good time up there.
