Wonderful place for nature lovers

Kambalakonda which comes after Maddilapalem located very opposite to the zoo park. It has beautiful wild life with rich sanctuary experience you would feel like as you are in forest. There are specific zones which will lead to top of attached mountain so that we can look around from there entire forest. Carrying food is not allowed as per terms, we can go far jeeps which are available inside. Finally it will be amazing feeling for spending time in this place especially if you are nature lovers.

Ecological Park where Nature beckons!

Near the Vizag Zoo, this park is a must visit for all. Trekking, boating, hitch-hiking, crossing bridges all in one go. Private vehicles allowed inside subject to permission. There is a cafeteria inside but with limited service.
