Covered in coffee plantations, Araku Valley sits at the edge of Andhra Pradesh and is close to the Odisha border. It’s a short drive from Vizag and offers weary travellers a chance to unwind. The lush, green Eastern Ghats offer plenty of breathtaking sights and you can gape at deep valleys and mist-covered hills here. On your trip, check out the tribal and coffee museum, and also visit nearby attractions like the stunning Borra Caves. One of our LBB Insiders has checked out The Bamboo Chicken, which serves up amazing tribal food. Read more here, if you want to sample it too!
