Nagalapuram is one of the beautiful hill station situated in Chittur District, southern part of Andra Pradesh, around 280 km from Bengaluru. Normally known for the various water falls situated in the hill station. As a Nature Walker I would say Nagalapuram is “Queen of Water Falls“, to see why you should come with us to explore.
Reaching the water falls is not so easy as it depends on the path we take to reach them. Trekking from west side of the hill station is easy compared to east. So most of the trekkers take west entry to reach the various water falls.
Nagalapuram trek is one of the most popular treks in and around Chennai as it is close to Chennai. Camping in the jungle is not officially allowed but people do camping here at their own risk.

Leaving from Bangalore at late night. We request you to have dinner before travelling. This trip would be an overnight journey to Nagalapuram in which we would have an informal introduction and have fun.
Reaching Nagalapuram in the morning. Fresh up at the homestay and Set up for the trek after a nice breakfast.
8.30 am – 10 am – Trek Base and Start trekking We will be starting our trek from the Nagalapuram Trek base. Where there is a dam constructed for the stream water to get stored.
10 am – 10.30 am – Into the Wild Starting of the trek will be through a open land with some minimal trees. Once you enter into the forest you will experience a whole new weather with small water streams flowing.
10.30 am – 11.30 am – First Water Falls
Further trekking into the jungle will take us to the First Water Falls which is eye catchy spot for the swimmers. Bit risky to get inside if you don’t know swimming. After taking some break and refreshment from the falls we will continue our trek.
11.30 am – 12 pm – Second Water Falls
The safe and the best place to get into water. You can even have “Fish Spa” here. Taking a dip into water here is very rejuvenating. And if you have a water proof camera you can even take a video of Fish Spa.
12 pm – 1 pm – Third Water Falls
Dream come true moment for those who know swimming. The water flows from top of the hill this water falls. The force of the water has created a pool like structure so that swimmers can jump form the hill top. We will have our packed lunch here and start descending after spending some quality time.
2.30 pm – 5.30 pm – Descending back
You can even get into the water while descending if you are not satisfied yet :-p. Once we reach the base will get into the bus and head back to homestay followed by snacks, dinner and campfire.
