Trekking, kayaking, zipline: Kambalakonda in Vizag is a perfect weekend getaway

Visakhapatnam: Summer means vacations, short adventure trips, and sweating out while having fun during the weekends. For people around Vizag, beaches are the best weekend getaway spots. But what if we tell you there are other fun places you can escape to during the summer weekends? Are you ready for an adventurous trip this weekend?

Kambalakonda is a vast forest reserve located near Visakhapatnam, covering an area of 17,000 acres. With lush green foliage covering the terrain, it is an excellent place for trekking and hiking while also making it sustainable for wildlife at the same time. Here are the activities you can look forward to when visiting the reserve:

Kayaking

What a joy it is to take a boat ride in the blue waters in the morning! Experience kayaking at the Kambalakonda pond with your loved ones and happily paddle around


Burma Bridge-Zipline

One must take this adventurous 70-meter walk on the Burma bridge that at first seems like child's play to cross, but you'll get to know the reality once you're on it.


The zipline swings you from the hill, giving you a wonderful experience. It is even more fun pausing in the middle for a few seconds to enjoy the view of Kambalakonda. The crew will provide you with all the safety gear needed, but the thrill and excitement are more than expected. The planks on the bridge seem to be the easiest part but wait for the surprise once you reach them.


Rock Climbing

Safely packed with belts and helmets, rock climbing and rappelling at Kambalakonda is an adventure.


Trekking

Take a three-km trek through Kamabalakonda jungles in the Eastern Ghats. With a minimum of five members for the trek, it will be a fun and adventurous trip. With diverse flora and fauna, this trek is relatively easy and is suitable even for beginners. Interestingly, many organising clubs can help you with your plans.
