Today morning after breakfast we started for our Araku Valley tour from Jagdalpur by cab. Tomorrow we would cover major Araku tourist places. Jagdalpur to Araku is about 200 km and by car it would take around 4 hours because we would spend some time on the way. As we started ascending the Ghats, we felt the change in the landscape and the climate, it was dramatic. Suddenly there were no people to be seen around, and the road became slope and curvy, lined by tall trees and there was silence all around but chirping of crickets. Occasionally, one could spot a group of monkeys scuttling alongside. One could also spot terraced farms and coffee plants growing under the shade of mango and jack fruit trees. At several places, we stopped and enjoyed the stimulating climate and spectacular vistas.
