This is a view of the famous hill station of Araku, from View point.

The Araku valley, located on the Anatagiri hills at a height of 1,161 mts from Sea Level is the place with the best natural scenery and greenery can be found. The Valley is located 112-Km from Visakhapatnam and has Waterfalls and streams which give a pleasant feeling to the mind. The 17 tribes living in this valley wear colorful dresses and costumes and were untouched with modern civilizations. Their rhythmic songs and tribal dances, the Dhimsa dance in particular are just marvelous. The valley has Cottages and Resorts for tourists who visit here on a week long trip.

Hi Sreya,
Wonderful birds eye view of Araku Valley and I love these many shades of green. Majestic scenery and you portray it well here. I have planned so many times to go there but it has not materialised, maybe some day I will. Only one thing, the sky looks OE and the halo around it takes away a bit from the image. Anyway, a fine image and excellent composition.
