Thrilling journey

Jan 14, 2016
Mode of Transport: Car

We started our journey from Vizag at 6. 30am. We reached Bora caves at 9.30 am. I enjoyed my ride. The road is good but this root had sharp curves that we have to care. The only problem is no petrol pump on the way. Hill trip is thrilling. Last time I went in my car. Next time I wish to go by my bullet. Bike trip is more thrilling than car drive.
