Kailasa Giri

Reviewed By ELINAM - New Delhi, India

It's a delight to walk around this beautifully maintained hill, amidst flowers and shady trees, up and down winding roads that are well maintained and clean. The biggest attraction is a ride on the glass compartment of the toy train that goes chugging along a quaint track, offering a 360 degree view. Don't miss the train trip.

Rama Krishna Beach

Reviewed By kramamurty - Visakhapatnam, India

This is a must visit place for all visitors to Visakhapatnam. The name came due to the existance of Rama Krishna Mission, nearly 80 years. It is still exists and many visit the Ashram. They maintain a Temple, guest houses and a Library. The beach is beautiful. Many people walk on beach road. In the morning the road blocked for vehicular traffic between 0500AM to 0730 AM, to facilitate pollution-free walking.
It has a beautiful Durga Temple.
There are decent Restaurants and places for children activities. Rama Krishna Beach has Submarine Museum and Aircraft Museum.
One can taste many local snacks from small vendors, especially PIDATHA KINDA PAPPU.
Come any enjoy !!
But keep it clean !!
