Ambapani Sanctuary:

            The picturesque Ambapani hills present a panoramic view of nature. It is located 77 kms from Bhawanipatna . It is particularly famous for the deity of Budharaja in a small temple at the foot of a hill. A frolicking valley known by Haldigundi in this range of hills exhibits some peculiar features due to the reflected rays of the sun. This sanctuary inhabits Black Panthers, Samber and spotted deer.

Chilika Lake:

            The Chillka Lake is a sanctuary and winter resort for migratory birds, some coming from as far as Siberia.Nestling in the heart of coastal Orissa, Chilika is India's biggest inland lake. Spread over 1,100 square kilometers, stretching across the length of the three districts of Puri , Khurda and Ganjam , it joins up with the Bay of Bengal through a narrow mouth, forming an enormous lagoon of Brackish water . Dotted with many emerald green islands with colourful names such as Honeymoon Island and Breakfast Island , Chilka is home to a rich variety of aquatic fauna.

            Encircled by hills all along its arched shape, Chilika lake's colour changes with passing clouds overhead and the shifting sun . The water ripples languidly, occasionally rippling with a gentle breeze across from the Bay of Bengal.

            Containing a large variety of fish, the lake provides a livelihood to thousands of fisherman. Hundreds of boats sail out daily on the lake's blue expanse in search of sight providing an insight into the pageant of rural India at its colourful best .

Simlipal Tiger Reserve :

            This is one of the National parks of India situated in Mayurbhanj district in Orissa.It is spread over an area of 2,750 sq.kms and was chosen by the Project tiger for conserving the country's depleting tiger population. This park has within its boundaries about 95 Royal Bengal Tigers , leopards, elephants , muggar crocodiles and a number of Reptiles and 231 species of birds.

            The vast expanse and changing topography as well as the vegetational and climatic variations in Simlipal have been the major reasons for the successful breeding of the flora and fauna. The varied beauty of the lush green forests, mountains and valleys give an extravagant view. Jashipur, one of the two entry points to the park, has a crocodile sanctuary; the other entry point being Lulung.

            The best way to see as much as possible would be to take a package tour which would take in the Barehipani waterfall (399 meters) and the Joranda waterfall (150 meters), the lush grasslands of Bachhuri Chara, the Meghasani peak(1,158 meters) and the wildlife in the environs. Jashipur, one of the two entry points to the park, has a crocodile sanctuary; the other entry point being Lulung.
