Places to visit
Similipal Sanctuary and National Park, Similipal

About 2,750 sq. km in area, in the Mayurbhanj district, is one of the most important wildlife parks not only in Orissa but also in India. Specially chosen to be one of the Tiger Reserves identified by Project Tiger to handle the onerous task of conserving India's fast depleting tiger population, Similipal has over 95 tigers within its bounds. Leopards, elephants, mugger crocodiles and numerous reptiles abound here. Over 230 species of birds have made their home amongst its forests and waterways. Apart from the wonderful wildlife, tourists get an excellent bonus of lush valleys and forest lands. The Barehipani Waterfall (399 mtrs) and the Joranda fall (150 mtrs) are well worth a visit as is the mugger crocodiles at Jashipur, one of the two entry points to Similipal. The other one is Lulung, fully equipped with a Forest Lodge of Orissa Tourism.
