    What Makes It Awesome

This offbeat trekking trail, located in Araku Valley, is the tallest peak in the state with an elevation of 1,690 m (5,540 ft) and is part of the Eastern Ghats.

You can experience the far and foggy view of green spread over the valley after crossing the difficult wedged passage in this Eastern Ghats trekking destination. The difficulty level is moderate and trek distance is around 10 km (one way, uphill).

    So, without much ado, pack your bags and set off on this adventure trail and give a boost to the thrill factor in you.


    Wear comfortable shoes and clothes for trekking. Also, if you are wondering about how you can reach there? Well, board train from Visakhapatnam to Araku, a journey of about three hours or a flight to Vishakapatnam airport (it is about 1 km from there). And then, just hire a taxi from Visakhapatnam to Araku Valley to travel by road.
