Camping at Nagalapuram, Eastern Ghats
- 2nd April 2017] -
About the place:
Nagalapuram, is a small town 70 km south east of Tirupati. This village was designed during Sri Krishnadevaraya reign in the memory of his mother. The town has a very famous temple of Vedanarayana swamy. Nagala trail is one of the famous trekking route in easter ghats.
Most of the trail goes under the jungle canopy which makes us easy to hike up without having to face the afternoon sun.
Koni Falls is one among the few little known trekking places in India, which includes hills, rivers and dense forest all around and provides thrilling experience for trekkers. The trek starts from the large lake which is connected to the reserve forest and is an ideal spot for camping. The pool of water is surrounded by high rocky mountains which can be climbed to reach the top of the cliff. There are three waterfalls throughout the trek and one of them has a sliding option on which you can easily slide and jump down into the deep clean waters. The gorgeous and absolutely stunning pools come after the other in little distance between each.
