To reach Nagalapuram waterfalls, search “Arai Village, Arai, Andhra Pradesh 517581” on Google maps. There is a motorable road until this village. The road from Nagalapuram to Arai village passes through the Pichatur town. This village is also the base village of the Nagalapuram trek.
From Pichatur, Arai village is around 11 Km. Once you reach Pichatur, you can also ask locals for the Arai village and they will guide you towards you the village.
Once reached over there, you can further drive up to the Nagala dam on the motorable road and park your vehicle near the dam
During Our trek, there was less water we trekked for around 5 km to reach aree falls, where the water flow was nice. we were around 6 swimmers and spend a good time there. We crossed 4 pools each are in different altitude and we need to cross one after one to reach the falls
This falls was not much known and commercialized when we went there in 2012 and my friend cum guide advised us that when you are lost in the jungle, try to find a stream and follow it. It would give you water and find you a way to civilization and finally we managed to complete our trek with the group and reached back to Chennai on late night. It was a worth experience if you are good swimmer
