Araku valley, is one among the best of best Hill stations of India, though not promoted in line with Mussoorie and Simla or Ooty. One must taste Bamboo Chiken. Travel by train from Visakhapatnam to Araku passing thru Tunnels , one must experience.

Take the Ap tourism tour. it's good for a day tour..only cons food will be south Indian if you are from North, it could be a problem. Else you book sumo from Vizag but then you will miss tunnel route which is only available... More
What are transport options available from Araku to Vizag via Road? Is there any AC buses that i can take? We are 2 people only so hiring an entire cab might be a bit expensive for me. I am going to Araku via train so don't want to take that route while coming down.

i dont think 4 days is necessary, even f youtrek to few waterfalls, 2 days is maximum. as told APTourism are the best. try anatagiri resort. 1 day. it is not advisable to go in summer, its very hot.
