Perched on a hilltop at a height of 304 m, the well-maintained Kailasagiri Park is a prime attraction of Visakhapatnam and makes for a great picnic spot. Sprawling over an area of 380 acre, the park offers spectacular views of the surrounding hills and the city. The park is noted for housing a 40-ft-high statue of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati that has become a popular symbol of the city. Even though the park can be accessed via road, the best way to reach here is taking a ropeway ride and enjoying the breathtaking views of the city on the way. For kids, the park offers an exciting toy train ride, which gives a circular tour of the site. Other popular attractions in the park include Floral clock, Titanic Viewpoint, Shanthi Ashram and amazing jungle trails. There is also a dedicated play area for children where they can enjoy horse riding and other activities. Kailasagiri has also emerged as a haven for paragliding enthusiasts and offers amazing facilities for tourists.
