Package Overview

Odisha is the land of myths and legends; exotic and unexplored. This tour explores these aspects in this state of India that is endorsed by its ancient people who continue to inhabit their dwelling places in remote areas in deep forests and hilly interiors to keep their tribal traditions alive. We begin this tour by visiting Bhubaneswar, the city of temples, where as many as 1000 temples existed at one point of time. In the first part of our trip we visit the rural part of Odisha to see the local tribes. Odisha has as many as 62 tribes that constitute an impressive 24 percent of the total population of the state. Their economy here is based on food gathering, hunting and fishing, the activities that bind them to this forest region. The most primitive groups of Tribes which we see are Kutia Kondhs, Dongria Kondhs and Bondas. Men and women come down from the mountains with different kinds of fruits and livestock to sell in the weekly. After visiting their villages we can also watch their interaction with other communities in these weekly markets. Bondas live in the remote hills and keep themselves isolated. They are normally seen only when they come to at the local. Our visit must be timed to coincide with the weekly market day on Thursday. We also visit the spectacular temples of Jagannath at Puri and Sun temple at Konark with very beautiful and intricate carvings. Later we reach Bhubaneswar from where we fly back in Kolkata, the city of joy which has a fascinating history that highlights its rich culture and literary flavors. The city survived even in the British era with a grace that can be seen even now. It’s a happening place where activities like fine arts, music, dance, theatre and writing continue to flourish. TOUR HIGHLIGHTS Kolkata - one of the main metropolitan and important cities of the country. Bhubaneswar - the capital city of Odisha and famously called as the ‘Temple City of East’. Bonda, Gadaba and Kutia Kondh tribes and their interesting weekly markets. Taptapani - a hot water spring. Puri – with its sacred 12th century Jagannath temple. Chariot-shaped Konark Sun Temple - a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
