Located just 30 kilometers from Daringbadi and 75 kilometers from Phulbani, the Mandasaru Nature Camp rests atop the renowned Manda Hill in eastern Kandhamal, Odisha. Enveloped by the lush tropical forests of the remote Mandasaru Gorge ecosystem – one of India’s last unspoiled wildernesses – Mandasaru makes for the best nature camp in Odisha for tourists. Part of a favored Orissa tourism destination, the Mandasaru Valley nature camp booking price is an affordable Rs 350 per ticket.
At 3280 feet, Manda Hill, or “Silent Valley of Odisha,” earns its moniker from the stunning views, biodiverse flora and fauna, and magical fog. It remains a hugely popular site for trekkers and nature lovers on Odisha tours. Locally called “Gdang Kutti”, Mandasaru houses six waterfalls including four seasonal falls feeding the Naputimaha River and eventually converging with a Rusikulya tributary.
The hilltop Mandasaru Valley Nature Camp cottages allow tourists on Odisha tours to relish gorgeous panoramas of the surrounding landscape and orchids. From the vantage point, seeing the clouds embrace the mountains and valleys is a sublime experience, drawing hordes during winter. With just 50 kilometers from Raikia to Mandasaru distance and 75 kilometers from Phulbani to Mandasaru distance, it makes for an ideal jungle retreat.
