Along the RIVER KRISHNA bed, the scenic AWARA TRAIL courses along the soft sands on an undulating course of the river spanned by a road bridge, a silver Rail bridge & the Prakasam barrage. The course avoids the dust, traffic jostle & the pestering pollution and meanders through the quiet, calm sands along the remnant water pockets & a spring stream with the morning river breeze.
Over the years, AWARAs have cleaned several tonnes of plastic & other offensive filth, cleared the thorny shrub overgrowth, drove out the illegal sand miners, open defecators & other criminals off the river bed, just by introducing weekly cleaning camps & daily personal example. The trail is now popular as the AWARA TRAIL.
