Day 1

Engineering is never completed without a gang trip. After completion of our 5th semester exams we planned to go for a trip to Vishakapatnam and Araku for few days. So, we booked our tickets in "Prashanthi Express" and we also booked tickets from vizag to araku in train. But due to an accident the train has cancelled from vizag to araku.

We have some plans, Destiny has some other beautiful plans for us. So, we booked our araku trip with local travelling agency in vizag.

On 4th November 2017, is the start to our wonderful journey. We took prashanthi express from Bangalore to vizag. It was a 24 hour journey and the most beautiful one too.

You should reach to the top on the rope way. It was the best experience, as you can see whole vizag and sea while you are going up. And for coffee lovers, don't miss the coffee at the bottom of the hill.

While on journey, towards araku we really very happy that our train has cancelled. We enjoyed a lot while travelling. We resumed at many beautiful places and seen the beauty of the nature and clicked some pics.

If you want to enjoy the nature, caves, hills etc. prefer train journey to araku. But if you want to plan perfectly according the situations, I suggest to travel by road.

Towards Borra Caves:

We directly went to the Borra caves. Try to visit while you are on the way to araku, so that you can reduce travelling distance. The entry ticket will be around 30/- to 40/- and if you want to carry smartphones you should buy an another ticket.

Near Borra caves, you can try "Bongulo chicken". The cost may vary according to the situations. But don't miss it.

After having our lunch, we went to katika waterfalls. You must visit those falls.

Up to a certain point you can go in your vehicle, after that you should hire another vehicle to take you near waterfalls.

Cost of vehicle is 2,500/-(up and down).

They will also take you to a certain point, from there you should trek few kilometers to reach waterfalls (4 km). But trust me, it's worth. You can even get into the water and you can spend time there. It was the most memorable moments in my life.

They provided us the best rooms available and we completely fell in love with those resorts. they are simply amazing.
