My Son's Araku Experience

The Araku Valley

Wild Flowers in the Valley

A Tribal Village

A Elderly Tribal Couple with Aakash

Smiling Faces

Coffee Berries


Taken by my son, Aakash, November, 2010, during a bike trip of about 2400 km from Kadapa to Hyderabad, Rajahmundry, Vijayawada and Vizag, Araku and the Borra Caves.

The Araku valley, located on the Anatagiri hills, at a height of 1,161 mts from Sea Level, is the place with great natural scenery and greenery. The Valley located 112-Km from Visakhapatnam is home to 17 tribes quite untouched by modern civilisations. Their rhythmic tribal songs and dances, the Dhimsa dance in particular, are marvelous. They cultivate coffee and are good apiarists.

I am so glad to see that people visit Araku valley with as much enthusiasm as Vijaywada :) I had been there in 2006. Lovely place, cave temples and people. Thanks for sharing the pix.

Very beautiful pictures. With rough, jagged mountain cliffs and dense forest cover, Araku makes an ideal spot for adventure sports, including camping and trekking trips. For tourist accommodation, check out these hotels in Araku.
