Awesome Araku Valley

Araku Valley is a hill station in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, lying 111km west of Visakhapatnam city. This place is often referred as Ooty of Andhra. It is a valley in the Eastern Ghats inhabited by different tribes. It is located in the Eastern Ghats about 114 kilometers from Visakhapatnam, close to the Odisha state border.

This is my 3rd trip to Araku, but this time armed with high tech gear to capture its beauty.  We spent our day 2 evening here amidst campfire and good food.  We took the road trip from Borra Cave to get here.  The beauty of the trip is in the journey to Araku, rather than the destination.  Next day, we walked around lush green paddy fields and captured some awesome video footage.  Each member of the team got enough selfies and portrait shots to update their social media display pics 🙂
