Day6: Araku - Vishakhapatnam

Post lunch I started for Borra caves, mood was bad as I had to pay twice for the food which I ate, can't do anything. So with a baggage of being cheated started forward journey.

As went ahead Araku is also famous for its coffee. Saw plantation and few shops on the way selling coffee beans and drink. But don't stop. Ghats road were beautiful for me it was a bit of Kumaon in monsoon. Wet clean roads, fresh smell of trees, curvy roads...

I reached Borra caves. These caves are formed due to limestone erosion from the mountains. Best part of Andhra Pradesh tourism is they have opened all tourists activities. But if you talk about defence operated tourist spot they are closed.

AP tourism has made good lighting in the caves.
Post visiting them the first thought came into my mind was to find a petrol pump and call it a day. Secondary thought came into mind, let's continue and reach Vishakhapatnam.

While driving towards Vishakhapatnam, I stopped for a full tank and that costed me a bomb. Around 3200 rs was billed for 40 Lt fuel. I felt like being scammed, I went back and enquired about the per litre price of Diesel and to my horror it was 79.something.

Can't do anything about that, when you drive a car, you have to get her filled to keep moving.
Went to railway station parking, which I felt would be a better idea as they are huge and safe.

Day7: Morning at Vishakhapatnam was a bit wet.. wake up and got free from morning routine, went for the breakfast.
Post that I moved towards a tata service center as one of the injector was not fitted properly when it was last taken out to refit the tappet cover to resolve a oil leak.
As usual they had a cold response, so got directed towards the market to get it fixed.
Post that I went towards the navy museum, to my horror it was closed. So clicked few pictures and now I was missing the bcmt sticker on the car.

Checked google and went to many shops to get sticker printed. Finally in the evening got that printed and it was on the rear door .


This was the first day where I took the room , went back to the room and slept there.
