29th Sep (Sun Day): Goto Araku from Vizag by Train. Full day sightseeing in Araku. (Night Stay)

1st Oct (Tues Day): Full day sightseeing in Jagdalpur. (Night Stay)
2nd Oct (Wednes Day): Train from Jagdalpur to HWH.

Please suggest me the Itinerary is ok. We booked hotel in Vizag. We not booked Hotel in Araku & Jagdalpur.
Is there enough good accommodation for travelers? Jagdalpur is now totally safe from Maosist?

If you want a guide in jagdalpur,

Jagdalpur details

Sorry, no idea of the maosist problem. Travel is inherently a risky proposition.

There are limited options of hotels in Araku. Apart from APTDC resorts, another option is hotel Rajdhani. Once I was there during puja. They are not professional. For APDTC resorts, you have to book it beforehand. I believe, spot booking is available there.

So atleast try to book hotels for Araku from Vizag because this place gets crowded during weekends as this is a weekend destinations for Hyderabad. Please check Apdtc hotels availibility in -
You can book online too.

Few suggestions -
Dont book any exclusive cab in vizag. You alwyas get buses or share autos.
Rishikonda beach is must see in Vizag.
Spend evening times at kailash giri as you would get best view of the city at the evening only.

I have nothing to mention specifically for Araku. Apart from train journey through the valley, there is nothing much. Just relax and enjoy the beauty of the valley.

Never been at Jagdalpur, so have no idea.
Happy journey!

"Bora Caves" is a worth visit.

You can check this link also for more information.
A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
