Day 1-we(A group of 9 friends)started from rushikonda, vishakapatnam, which is approximately 124 km, we opted for 1-four wheeler and 2 two wheelers to reach the valley(2 wheelers are mostly preferred for faster reach, and to enjoy the experience). We started around 3:00PM and by the time we reached, it was almost 8:00 PM, usually it takes 3 and a half hours to reach this beautiful valley, but we stopped at various places in the middle due to rain and other things, and we checked into the hotel- Ushodya resort, it's a really good hotel to stay in which costed us around 850 bucks per one room, we booked 3 rooms, we orderd food and gathered some booze and sat down to chill in the hotel
