If you’re looking for weekend getaways or a quick trip without burning a hole in your pocket for a winter vacation, check out these places in Vizag.

#1 Araku Valley

Araku is a constant favourite, and never gets boring. For an ideal winter vacation, take a break and head to Araku, comprising of the valleys and hills, to reconnect with nature amid lush greenery and stunning views of the hills. You can also stock up on fresh coffee from the coffee plantations.  Freshly grown spices can also be stocked up at the local markets. Of course, not to miss out on the Bamboo Chicken, locally knowns as “Bongulo Chicken”

#2 Lambasingi

The adorable hamlet of Lambasingi is the best place to visit if you just want to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of city life. Dress warmly and snuggle next to a campfire as the temperatures here drop to 0 degrees! One can also opt to stay with their group at rented camping tents situated in pastures along the hilly roads. Set in a background of hills, and covered in a beautiful green carpet, Lambasingi gets a thumbs up from us for a quick and easy option for winter vacation.

#3 Bheemili Beach

Beaches over mountains? Wish granted! Take a road trip to the scenic Bheemili Beach and let the winds de-stress you even before you get there! The drive is extremely scenic and will flip your mood in a jiffy.
