The State Tourism Department in Andhra Pradesh is holding a three-day full moon festival at Oravakallu, a natural landscape of regal rock formations, beginning today.
Oravakallu, on National Highway 18, is considered as one of the oldest rock formations in the world and is situated 25 kilometres from Kurnool district.
These natural rock formations are perfect for trekking, as visitors can climb up the rocks, which are of multitude shapes and sizes. On reaching the highest point, visitors are rewarded with a breathtaking view of the water body that has wide open spaces and clear blue skies as its backdrop.
Named as ''Punnami Oravakallu'', the festival will commence on a grand-scale and it is the first ever full moon festival to be celebrated at one place.
The festival will be an annual affair and based on the number of tourists and the response received for the festival, the Andhra Pradesh tourism will consider holding the event every month.
Orvakallu is a great place to enjoy a picnic under the shade of the mighty rocks; and it also offers great photo opportunities for visitors who want to take back souvenirs of their memorable holiday in Andhra Pradesh. ANI
