Early morning bird watching jungle trek in Tyda:
The resort organizes bird watching treks every morning, with a local guide. Even though the jungle is not very dense, the terrain is steep and this makes the trek challenging. If you are lucky, you may spot the Blue jay, white eagle among other birds.
Camping & Trekking:
There are plenty of good trekking trails and camping spots around Tyda which make it a much sought after resort for adventure enthusiasts. Log Huts, Tents and camping gear can be arranged by the resort.
Other attraction include rock-climbing and target shooting with bows and arrows.
Places to See
Explore the valley, visit the Padmapuram botanical gardens, the Chaparai water stream (in monsoon and winters) and the tribal musuem. Bicycles are available for rent at the APTDC Hill resort, on hourly basis. Ride a bicycle, go into the valley and explore a little bit of Araku yourself.
On the way to Borra caves:
Stop at a couple of view points to catch the cloud filled mountains and the deep valleys. You can see the train track, and if you are lucky, catch the train. There are coffee estates on the way and coffee vendors selling coffee from freshly ground beans.
Believed to have been formed 150 million years ago, the huge Borra caves are a splendid sight and attracts a lot of tourists. It is neither dark nor suffocating as you'd expect of a cave. You will be amazed to see the natural rock formations culminating into popular mythological figures.
