Vizag and Warangal

This post is a part of Blogadda's Travel Photos contest where we have to display top five travel pictures clicked by us .

This picture is taken at Ramakrishna beach, Vishakapatnam on the Bhogi Day(Sankranthi festival). I had to wait  nearly 30 minutes for the boat to sail through the trail of sun image in the sea . On bhogi day, people will gather here in early mornings to celebrate Bhogi by creating heaps of flames . The Kailasa giri hill near this beach is a major tourist attraction .
 This picture is taken at Laknavaram lake, Warangal. This hanging bridge is a major tourist  attraction over there.  Warangal has got many historical temples like Ramappa temple, Thousand pillars temple etc.



This picture is taken at Laknavaram lake, Warangal. Though it appears to be a natural one, it was built by Kaakathiya kings. Serene, soothing and sublime. What appealed me is the shades of blue gradually diminishing into pale brown. This lake appears like a secret lake amidst the forest.




This picture is taken on the way to Araku valley, near Vishakapatnam. Actually we were suppose to catch the train, but we missed it and took the road way instead. We had to chase the train to click it amidst the winter  morning . This train passes through nearly 50 tunnels and many small bridges across the valley. Araku is also known as Andhra Ooti. As usual, the railway track was laid by the British for easy transportation of iron ore. Borra caves and Katiki water falls are other major tourist spots in Araku valley.





  This picture is taken at Rushikonda beach, Vishakapatnam . I deliberately avoided to show the faces of those kids riding on the horse . One of my best pictures i have clicked till now. What made me impacting is the way the girl holding her little brother.  Rushikonda beach is one of the beautiful beaches in Vishakapatnam and it has got resorts near by.
