[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Araku Valley is located 115 km from Vishakhapatnam, close to the Orissa state border. This place lures people with pleasant weather, hills and valleys. The natural beauty of this valley comes alive with its rich landscape. The area of the valley is roughly 36 kmē, and the altitude is between 600 and 900 meters above sea level.

The journey to this place on the Ghat road with thick forests on either side is in itself interesting and pleasant. One can have a wonderful trekking trip. Forty-six tunnels and bridges will greet you on the way. The Ananthagiri hills on the way to Araku Valley are famous for coffee plantations. The Borra caves, located 29 km from Araku Valley, are a nearby tourist attraction.

I could never imagine such a lush green hill scape in AP, Sreya. Now I'm pleasantly surprised.
This is a good view of the valley from a higher vantage point. The greenery soothes the eyes.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Sreya,

Good pov and beautifu different green colours.
Personally I think you have the sky overexposed and that's a pity from this further beautful picture.
