I had heard a lot about this place. So I made a visit to this ‘hill station’ in end Mar 24. I was disturbed by the levels of ecological devastation perpetrated on the place in the name of development.

Mindless, unplanned and unaesthetic construction, which is blatantly incongruous in the setting can be seen everywhere. Umpteen road widening and bridge building projects, which must undoubtedly have been preceded by rampant tree felling of indigenous forest trees, also blight the landscape.

The air is saturated with dust. And if one is hoping for a respite from the sweltering heat and pollution pf Visakhapatnam, then I am sorry to say, your hopes are going to be dashed.

Very pathetic facilities and upkeep at this tourist destination. No good hotels, restaurants, coffee shops. Whatever are available, they are very basic, dirty and APTDC hotel staff is miserably impolite, untrained and in dirty attire. Equally bad is Vistadom. Bottom line is for the poor upkeep of this place, both State & Central Government are responsible

I had the most amazing time at Araku Valley. I had gone with friends and we spent two days visiting Lambasingi, Katiki waterfalls and Vanjangi.
The highlight was the trek to Vanjangi to see the rising sun.

Rail cum Road package of AP Tourism is horrible. They put tourists in general unreserved rail compartment from Vizag to Araku. Badly treated. Never recommend AP tourism.

Araku Valley is a hilly area in Vishakhapatnam. Small hill and cool weather to give a relief from sunny bright weather. But truly not so great as the options available in North India are much better. Also very difficult for vegetarians to survive as people love non veg in this area. Not a single veg restaurant available
