Kondakarla Ava is fresh water lake in Visakhapatnam (Vizag). This is situated at the foot hills of eastern ghats. The wet evergreen forests have unique and endangered birds species. The bird sanctuary forest type has made it ‘Eco tourism destination’
Though it is recognised as bird sanctuary I could spot just two birds on the morning I visited the place. We only had a lovely boat ride and could watch beautiful sunrise.
On the way back from Kondakarla Ava we saw a place where jaggery is made.
we got down off our vehicle and saw how the sugarcane juice was boiled in large cauldron.
We purchased blocks of fresh jaggery and also jaggery liquid.
