Vizag, known as the City of Destiny, located overlooking the Bay of Bengal, is one of India’s most underrated tourist places. With the second longest coastline in the country, the city offers some of the most scenic beach views. Undoubtedly, one of the best things about Vizag is its perfect division of hills and beaches. Hiking up hills indeed benefits us by improving our physical health, but they also give the best views of the entire city. Check these hills out to find yourself falling head over heels for Vizag all over again.

Here are some hills in Vizag that offer a breathtaking view of the city.

Kailasagiri Hill

Kailasagiri, translating to the abode of Shiva, gets its name from the 40 ft tall statues of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. On the hilltop is a park that overlooks the vast blue sea as well as the lush green mountains encompassing the city. The hill offers a picturesque view of the urban sprawl, making one fall in love with Vizag immediately. The park offers other fun activities like the toy train ride, the ropeway and cable cars. Kailasagiri is open from 6 am to 7:30 pm.

Ross Hill

Ross Hill is said to have gotten its name from Monsieur Ross, a local guide who built a house on the hilltop. This location, located in the One-town area, is more famously known for its century-old church, locally known as Mary Matha Gudi. A visit to the hilltop gives a sight of the whimsical waves, as well as the Visakhapatnam Port. The Ross Hill church follows a code of silence which makes it ideal for relishing a scenic view of the coast.
