A popular hill station of Andhra Pradesh, Anantagiri lies between Visakhapatnam and Araku Valley and makes for a great weekend getaway. Dotted with endless acres of picturesque coffee plantations, the hill station once served as the summer retreat of the erstwhile rulers of the region. Anantagiri is also known for its numerous waterfalls, fruit orchards, eye-catching ravines and beautiful gorges set amidst hillocks. The most popular among all is Chaparai Waterfalls, also known as Dumbriguda Falls. Borra Caves, one of the largest in the country, lie nearby and one can witness million-year-old stalactite and stalagmite formations in the caves. Visitors can also visit the Padmapuram Botanical Gardens. A visit to the sacred lake of Bhavanasi makes for a delightful experience. The hill station is blessed with rich fauna and flora, including medicinal herbs. Anantagiri lies at a distance of 87 km from Visakhapatnam and should not be missed.
