Araku is about 1000 kilometres from the coast of Visakhapatnam district headquarters – Vizag, Andhra Pradesh, India. It is connected by road and also by the world’s highest broad gauge railway laid long ago for transporting iron ore.
The best time to visit the valley is during March-April when the silent night echoes to the sound of music and dance. But naturalists and anthropologists flock here throughout the year to explore the unending beauties of the valley that open up one after the other…endlessly.
