The Eastern Ghats of India are the less explored regions of the country, but their beauty is something that must be experienced by one and all. Dotted with gems of all different kinds, one of the most beautiful and worth visiting places here lies in the state of Andhra Pradesh near the Chittoor District, which is the Nagalapuram Falls. This trek to the falls opens you up to the wilderness around the area that are actually the gateway to the cascades of Nagalapuram.

On this one trek, you will experience hills, rivers and dense forests making for a thrilling experience in the Eastern Ghats. Starting from a large lake which is also a great campsite and connected to the reserve forest, the trek leads you uphill into the jungle and rocky highs to finally arrive at three different waterfalls, one of which even provides the fun of sliding down on it.

The total trek of about 12 to 15 km has an easy to moderate rating and the whole while you will be trekking beside a river stream, making following the trail rather easier. You will arrive at the campsite located on a beach and enjoy the night with some games and a peaceful sleep. In the morning, you will be taking a ferry/boat ride. 

The trek then starts as you depart for the Nagalapuram Lake and follow a stream to cover all the waterfalls on the trail. After this, you will retrace your steps to reach the starting point of the trek where a delicious vegetarian lunch will be waiting for you.

Timings- Arrive at the beach campsite at about 6 PM.

How to Reach?
The campsite location will be disclosed once the package is booked.
