We are planning to visit the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Which are the best months?

The Andamans are definitely worth a visit just to unwind. The best time would be
between November and January as the weather is pleasant. Avoid visiting between April and August as it is the monsoon season and immediately post the monsoon in September and October.

However, in case you love the rains and would just like to relax indoors, then it is best to visit between April and August.

I want to visit Vizag, Araku and Jagdalpur in Andhra Pradesh. How many days will it take to cover all the places? What are the sightseeing spots we should visit? Please suggest some good hotels.

I don’t know much about Jagdalpur but can definitely tell you about Vizag. If you want to stay on a beach resort, try the Rushikonda beach resort run by Andhra Pradesh Tourism.

You could also try Sai Priya resorts. In two days, you can visit Araku and the Borra caves. You can try staying at the Jungle Bells Nature Camp in the Araku Valley.

It is a beautiful place, located in the middle of the jungle. The places of interest here include the Padmapuram botanical gardens, the Ananthagiri waterfalls, the tribal museum and the surrounding coffee estates.

Try going to Aruku by train, and make the return journey by road. The rail journey presents some magnificent sights. I think three days will be sufficient to cover Vizag.

Visit Rushikonda beach, the Kailasagiri hill and the Tenneti Park for its beautiful view of Vizag city. Don’t miss the Navy’s submarine museum.
