Some Moments at Satkosia Gorge Wildlife Sanctuary, Orissa

Some Moments at Satkosia Gorge Wildlife Sanctuary, Orissa, a place I visited in December 2010

How to Reach:
The Satkosia Tiger Reserve is situated about 200 kms from Bhubaneswar, the capital of Orissa.
You can reach Bhubaneswar by train from all parts of the country.
Or you need to travel to Cuttack in Orissa by rail. From Cuttack, travel to Angul (which is 115 kms away), via bus, in order to reach Satkosia. The entry point is situated at Pamapsara, at a distance of around 30 kilometers from Angul.
You will have to take the permits from DFO Office at Angul.
From Angul proceed to Pampasar, which is the main entry gate to the reserve.
Buses are available from Bhubaneswar to Angul and then one can organize private transport from Angul or Dhenkanal.

Where to stay:
The best accommodation is undoubtedly the nature camp at Tikarpada on the banks of Mahanadi. We stayed here, but not sure if it's still open. There are a few forest bungalows and guest house, please contact the forest department or OTDC for details.
