3. Wildlife in Odisha

Odisha is one of the most kickass destinations if you want to shoot some wildlife with the all expensive camera gear that you carry in your saddle bags ;). From Chilika lake to the beautiful Nandan Kanan from Kuldiha forest to the beautiful Mangalajodi swamps. chilikainner

A special mention about Vetnai needs to be mentioned here as this is one of the most unique places to see Black Bucks in wild. A small, lesser known village in Orissa’s Ganjam district – Vetnai or Bhetnai holds the specialty that innumerable male and female Black Bucks roams freely at the slopes of the mountain range of Eastern Ghats, making you feel like you might be on the outback of Australia. blackbuck

4. The lesser known Odisha

Whenever we think of Odisha, instantly few names pop in our minds, Bhubaneswar, Puri, etc. Truth be told there are places in Odisha which as lesser known that these famous tourist destinations but are as beautiful as they come. A visit to the Satkosia Wildlife sanctuary, riding through the Eastern Ghats twisties and riding through dense jungle is surely a kickass bikers dream. IMG_9464-Edit

Getting lost in the middle of nowhere is what every tourer dreams off and this is just the place where you would experience that feeling.

5. Experience the rich tribal culture

When you take a turn and enter into the state highways or short village roads, is when you realize the rich cultural beauty of Odisha. The number of tribes that reside in Orissa is the highest anywhere in India. It accounts about 22.21% of the total population of the state. People spend so much money and visit Africa to experience tribal tourism, whereas we have such a lovely tribal culture here in Odisha itself.
