The valley is connected through both rail and road to the city of Vishakapatnam. The two railway stations are situated on the Kothavalasa-Kirandul line and are a venture of the East Coast Railways. The Shimiliduga Railway station is the most popular station and is located at a height of 1000 meters from the sea level.
The valley is also popular for its coffee plantations. Many world famous brands produce their coffee at the Araku Valley. The Araku Valley Plantations have made Telangana one of the largest producers of coffee in our country. I also visited the nearby located Anantagiri Reserved Forest which has helped in the preservation of many endangered species of animals and plants. My entire trip was peaceful and the satisfaction that one gets by coming close to Mother Nature cannot be compared to anything else.
