A travel lover I am, with always great expectations on my place of visit, though with intense fondness of location of religious beliefs, yet other adventures are no less lovable to me. The long massive walks to the Ashrams corridor has left me with great signs of fond memories but my expeditions usually counts on an all-rounding aspects, where forest life and its charm holds the priorities. Visakhapatnam is a place of extreme diversification. Apart from the booming industrial city, it forms a congenial blend of deep valleys, magical hills, forestry and golden beaches along the coastline of Bay of Bengal. I was thrilled with the till date travel experience and was yet more anxious to explore my next destination Kambalakonda Wildlife Sanctuary Visakhapatnam.
Located at a nearby distance from the main city, the sanctuary owns a dry evergreen forest mixed with meadows and shrubs. It’s a renowned abode of the rare species of flora endemics and fauna with varieties of monkeys, leopards, wild boat, barking and spotted deer and sambar. I had a remarkable and splendid experience of travelling around the forest reserve, riding on a horse. Being amidst the endangered species along with several emus, peacocks, deer gave a refreshing treat to my visit. A well known Eco- tourism park of Visakhapatnam has an additional advantage to the adventure seeker like me i.e.; trekking. An exposure to the sleep and gentle slopes and open and dense forest over a stretched 4.5 km area, along with the strenuous physical exercise, were the encountered experiences of that expedition.
The all new environment offered a relaxed and soothing climate, breaking the monetary of my arduous life. Moreover, boating in a reservoir or feeling the movements and noises of the flock of birds and scintillating sound of water bodies from a specially designed watch tower adds to the tranquility of the ambience. A wonderful experience on the whole Kamalakonda Wildlife Sanctuary Visakhapatnam provided me with a rejuvenated life and sky touching excitements to travel to my next destination, Araku Tribal Museum Visakhapatnam, situated amidst the Araku Valley, a beautiful hill station in Visakhapatnam district along the Eastern Ghats.
