Often regarded as 'Ooty of Andhra Pradesh, Araku Valley is a hill station and home to indigenous tribes on the Eastern Ghats. Abundant with forests and coffee plantations, it is known for its rich bio-diversity. But are you wondering what else you could do in and around Araku? Allow us to chip in! You can camp and hike at Ananthagiri Hills, feed fishes and take in the sights at Matsyagundam, check out the Aruku Valley Coffee Museum and sample local coffee, have a picnic at Dumbriguda Waterfalls, and tuck in a wholesome Andhra Thali at Vasundhara Restaurant.
One of the less explored hill stations around Vizag is Lambasingi. This is a small village in Andhra Pradesh and it is often regarded as the Kashmir of South India. Although this place is a massive hit among travellers in winter as it experiences sub-zero temperatures and foggy weather, it is a great choice for summer getaways. You are going to love the dense forests, plantations, and valleys, and these are must-visits. One of the top places to visit nearby is Erravaram Waterfalls — get here to make a splash. There is also Lambasingi Dam if you want to lounge around and chill by the sunset hour.
Cannot drive to Goa? Drive down to Suryalanka Beach — the closest beach to Hyderabad. Wondering what to do apart from beach bumming? Make this weekend getaway more than just a beach party by visiting the iconic Undavalli caves that is believed to have been existing since the 4th century, get spiritual and visit the historical 14th-century Bhavanarayana Temple, spend quite evenings at Kondaveedu Fort to enjoy the scenic views from a hill top, sight over 7,000 bird species at Uppalapadu Bird Sanctuary, and drive to Rajiv Gandhi Park located on the banks of a river for gram worthy pictures with colorful sculptures.
