Satkosia Gorge Is Odisha’s Spectacular Offbeat Secret You Need To Know About!

Surrounded by the forests of Satkosia Tiger Reserve, on the bank of river Mahanadi “Satkosia Nature Resort” at Badmul is on the foothills of majestic mountains facing the Satkosia Gorge of magnanimous Mahanadi River meandering through the golden sand bars. 

Tourists can spend evenings watching local Folk dance rounding it off with Star Gazing, Bonfire and Open Sky Dinner on Sandbar. Sands Sports, Boating in the Satkosia Gorge, Cycling in the Jungle, Sunbath & Swimming in River Mahanadi with trekking through the hills with our veteran Eco-Guides makes your day well spent in the wild. Satkosia Gorge is also a favorable destination for many migratory birds. In winters, Badmul is the only place where 100’s of Indian Skimmers can be seen on Sandbars with Brahminy Ducks, Pintails, Bar Headed Geese, Thicknees’s, Pratincoles, Herons, Gulls, Lapwings etc. You can see Muggers & Turtles basking on River bank/ Sandbar during Boating in Satkosia Gorge (Satkosia River Cruise). 

Day visitors to the tiger reserve are allowed inside subject to rules and conditions. They have to obtain permission from the Pampasar forest check gate and will have to leave the forest by the stipulated time. Tikarpada is about half an hour’s drive through the forest from Pampasar. Depending on the time at your disposal, you may visit Puranakote hilltop, about 15 minutes’ drive from Tikarpada. From here, Chhotkei is another half an hour’s drive. The drives through the forest offer a unique experience but remember you have to exit the Pampasar gate by 6pm; penalties may apply for breaking the rules.

You may also combine a visit to Kuanria dam and deer park, and the Kantilo Neelamadhav Temple while visiting Satkosia.
