      Sprawled on the top of the hill, this place is one of the major tourist attractions in Visakhapatnam. It is our favourite picnic spot. We had been to this place a number of times with friends and relatives and it is really a nice getaway very close to the city. It provides a spectacular view of the sea from the hill top. Various vantage points with sitting arrangements have been provided on the

      hill from which the sea can be seen. One can approach the hill via a ghat road or by the toy train.

      There are many interesting sights to see on the top of the hill. Especially attractive is the Shanku Chakra Naama which is 40 meter high and symbolizes Lord Vishnu. The other attractions are the huge statues of Shiva and Parvati, the Floral Clock, jungle Trails, seven Wonders of Vizag, Shiva Temple, Titanic ...


      • View Point, Shanti Ashram, Art Gallery, Road Train and the Telescopic Point.

        The toy train is the new attraction added. This train journey of 20 minutes duration costs Rs 40/- for adults and Rs 30 for kids below the age of 10 years. The compartments are fitted with transparent glass to provide an excellent view of the sea and the hill as you go up the hill. The difficulty is that the

        compartments get hot during the afternoon.

        It is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. One can relax in the calm and serene atmosphere while the children play. We feel like being in heaven especially during the monsoon time when it is not too heavily raining. There are parks, restaurants, sporting activities like para gliding available on the hill. The hills also provide a spectacular view from the city during the night.
