It was time for a trek and we headed to Katiki Waterfalls. It was a delightful trek indeed.The route to this place was a bit tricky! Careful Driving! We kept our vehicles at the bottom and started walking. On the way there was a Railway Track passing midway through the trek and the waterfall was at top.
We decided to visit Katiki falls which was around 20 Km from Araku valley. The important thing is that there is no proper road to reach Katiki waterfall. The only way to reach this waterfall is to book Tata Sumo for around 8 Km and then trek for 1-2 Km. The roads are very dangerous and it will be scary at some points. We had to spend Rs 2000 for this ride because of no proper road and any choice. Finally reached water fall after some 1-2 Km trek from dropping point of Tata Sumo. The waterfall was not up to expectations but the journey to reach there made it a thrilling experience.
The katiki water falls are situated in Andhra Pradesh in Vishakhapatnam district. Basically the water is originates from River Gosthani. It is 4 kms away from Borra Caves. Own vehicles are not allowed in that area. To reach the waterfalls the person needs to go in the jeeps which will be available near the water falls they will be charging Rs 200 /- per head. And to some extent only the jeeps are allowed from that place the person need to go by walk around 1km to 1.5km. When we walk around 1 to 1.5 km at some point we feel as when it will come because as it is located in the hill area we need to go upwards and also the route is also in a proper manner. In between we can also the find the railway track and a cannel.  But when we reach the waterfalls we will forget all the pain we have got and start enjoying the cold and fresh water from the river. When we go by walk we can experiences the nature and do fun in-between and can also taste the tasty and yummy bamboo chicken which are available in the stalls with the price of Rs 20/- only and they also sell the bamboos sticks for 250/- each to experiences the bamboo chicken taste after reaching home. The view will be Awesome from the top it will be covered with various types of trees when we reach the top at the destination we cannot view the roads as it is fully covered by trees. The water will be falling from the 40 feet of height cold and fresh water which is also can also be used as a drinking water. When we step in the water initially we feel as we have touched the defreeze water. The specialty of these waterfalls is we can experience the waterfalls by standing under the flow.
