Horsley Hills Tourism, India: Places, Best Time & Travel Guides 2021

Tucked away in the interiors of Andhra Pradesh lies a rare gem, a series of hills called the Horsley Hills which are an absolutely breathtaking sight to behold. At an elevation of 1290 metres, the hills don’t offer a lot in terms of activities, yet people from near and afar visit this hill station for its exemplary views, delicious food and relaxed vibe coupled with beautiful weather.

Sightseeing In Horsley Hills

- Horsley Hills Zoo where you can spot peacocks, rabbits, crocodiles, and lush deciduous and eucalyptus trees. 

- The Chennakesava Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. 

- Kaigal Falls, which is a perennial waterfall, where the water cascades down from a height of 40 feet, onto a huge rock. 

Things to Do

- Trek to the top of the hills for a panoramic view of paradise, accompanied by fog and chilly weather.

- Spot Kalyani, the 150 year old Eucalyptus Tree.

- Indulge in local Andhra flavours at Hotel Horsley and Punnami Resort, bang opposite the zoo. 

Staying at Horsley Hills

In spite of being a small hill-station, Horsley Hills does a commendable job with the stays it offers. If you want something a tad bit luxurious, you can opt for AP Tourism’s Haritha Resort which, along with a nice viewpoint behind the building is equipped with a gym and a swimming pool, so you can keep yourself engaged with activities during your stay. The tourism board even offers guest houses, and so does the nearby town Madanapalle. 

Horsley Hills is the ideal spot for a tête-à-tête with nature where you’ve got nothing to do and ample time to do just that!
