A – ARAKU VALLEY


I am Glad to participate in the A-Z April challenge 2015. Hope to meet and interact with many more bloggers and look forward to a lot of learning.

This year I decided to focus on the topic Travel, wherein I will share pictures of the places I visited to relive memorable moments of my life with gratitude; and also share my dream and hope to visit newer places in my life time.

My first post with letter A is Aaraku valley, located at 3,200 feet high in the midst of the Anantagiri hills, Andhra Pradesh, India.  This valley is beautiful with lush green landscape which I visited last summer with my family; I fell in love with the beauty of this place, calm, quiet and untouched and away from city life.

The bus ride was exciting and adventurous as it takes you higher and higher uphill, bringing in thrill and fun, the places is covered with coffee plantations, wherein you will get a nice cup of coffee and the roadside sweet corn was a delight to taste.

Araku Valley
A nice place for a retreat, I love nature and greenery, this is very refreshing place even as I am posting, I am feeling so good and fresh, it’s worth visiting. I always loved travelling; and did travel as a single, after marriage I could not travel much.... am grateful to God for the opportunity to travel once again and enjoy the beauty around; also understand there is so much to learn, find and discover in this short span of life.




Happy blogging !!!
