We boarded in Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) bus in Vizag, which was not in good condition. But the roads are good and there are many beauties that can be seen on our ride. There will be lots of joy on the ride.

Small Advice: Good to start in evening at around 3.30 to 4, so that one can enjoy the ride in cold breeze :)

We were fortunate that the entire coach was empty because of the season. Coupled with Telangana Bandh and also heavy incessant rain the entire coach was almost flooded as most windows would not be shut. It was quite a thrilling experience trying to reduce the extent of wetness. The external view was wonderful and worth all our other travails. Vizag to Araku has 50 plus tunnels and commands beautiful scenic vistas. Araku to Kirandul was also beautiful because of the rain. Unfortunately hardly ant eats are available for such a long journey. We could not carry anything we were travelling through the bandh.

We were on our honeymoon and took a leisurely drive to Araku valley with stops at Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam. The road was excellent with most of the road having two lines per direction of travel. There was greenery on both sides of the road for a long distance once we crossed Vijayawada. The ghat road was also of good quality when travelling between Visakhapatnam and Araku valley.

Be sure to pack enough drinking water when travelling during summer. There are many towns on the way (with a little de-tour) if you are tired and want a place to stay.

There are many important Hindu religious places on the way including Durga Temple at Vijayawada, Mangalagiri Temple, Dwaraka Tirumala Temple, Temples at Ryali, Annavaram, Simhachalam and few others like Draksharamam and other pancharamams with a little de-tour.

One the way back, we travelled via Kakinada for a change and this travel was equally good though the roads were narrow until we reached NH again.
