Come back to nature -
to Bangriposi, a quaint tribal hamlet nestled at the foothills of the Thakurani hills in Mayurbhanj, Odisha. Witness rustic hospitality,
an earthen home-away-from-home and delicious wood-fired local meals.
Put up at our eco cottage.
A far cry from urban sophistication and luxury,
we do not have televisions,
air-conditioners or geysers. We do have clean toilets, fresh sheets, warm blankets and an overall sense of coming back home. The scent of the forest, rural life around you and a moonshower on the patio is
an added attraction.

EAT

Delicious wood-fired meals from our kitchen. Don’t forget to specifically ask for alu chokha, dimer dalna, chicken curry and chicken roast. Also try the local ‘gulgule’ at the dhaba next door and the chhena pora from the market.
SIT

For hours under the starry
sky or on the culvert on the highway (not after 10 pm though). For the more adventurous, hike up the rocky hills and sit in the caves with
a packed lunch or trek to the Buribalam river and sit on the boulders and watch the sunset. For the faint-hearted, ask for the madoor and sit next to the unoon/chulha in the evenings when Kunni (caretaker’s daughter) cooks your meals.
PRAY

At the bonbibi or Duarsini temple or visit the Nilamadhaba temple to see a ‘live’ Jagannath. Don’t forget to carry a pinch of salt with you though! For pantheists, look at nature and seek your God!

Around 230 species of birds like the Grey Hornbill, Indian Pied Hornbill, Malabar Pied Hornbill, Indian Trogon, Red Jungle Fowl, Hill Mynah, Peafowl, Alexandrine Parakeet, and Crested Serpent Eagle are found here. The National Park
is also home to a large number of reptiles including snakes and turtles. The spectacular Barehipani waterfall, with a 400-metre drop, and the Joranda waterfall, with a shorter drop of 150 metres, are so beautiful that one is forced to reflect on nature’s majesty. Besides the fact that there’s a lot of wildlife to be seen in Simlipal, there’s also a wide range of local flora; the park boasts of at least 82 species of orchids. many of which are on show at the small display at Gurguria. The National Park has
a core area of about 850 sq km, where most of the tigers are concentrated. What you’re more likely to see are elephants, monkeys, deer and birds. The other attractions of the Simlipal National Park are Mugger crocodiles at Jashipur apart from Barehipani and Joranda waterfalls. The Best time to visit this park is from November-June.
