Welcome to Bhitarkanika!

Bhitarkanika, located in Odisha's Kendrapara district, is a unique natural wonderland that includes mangrove forests, wetlands, and rivers. The core region includes Bhitarkanika National Park and Bhitarkanika Wildlife Sanctuary, which together constitute India's second-largest mangrove environment. Bhitarkanika tourism is most known as a nesting location for endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles, which congregate every winter to lay eggs on the Gahirmatha beach. A Bhitarkanika National Park tour also allows you to see estuarine crocodiles, the world's largest reptile species, sunbathing in the flowing rivers and creek networks. Birdwatchers can see kingfishers, herons, egrets, and raptors all across the lush mangroves during Bhitarkanika National Park tourism. The Brahmani, Baitarani, and Dhamra rivers wind through the park, providing opportunities for wildlife viewing from a boat. The region's relative solitude and low-key tourism provide an opportunity to explore nature in its purest form. Staying in the forest department cottages while embarking on Bhitarkanika Odisha tourism provides for peaceful sunrise walks amidst the peacefulness. Bhitarkanika's mangroves, marshes, and lush biodiversity form a magnificent environment that nature enthusiasts can explore.
