It was a wonderful experience being there. It's a best time to visit during the winter season. Stay there for a night and you will really enjoy a lot.

I went to Simlipal National Park. There is a sizable population of reptiles as well, which include snakes and turtles. The population of crocodiles has increased considerably since the inception of the Mugger Management Program. It is great place to go.

The area of Simlipal is enriched with thick forests, scenic Santhal tribal settlements, beautiful waterfalls like barehipani, joranda and mind blowing rivers. But don't expect to see wild animals.Travellers are advised to carry anti-malarial drugs and sufficient drinking water before leaving for such expeditions.
