The Trip: Kuldiha Forest

Dear readers, A big hello all. This is my first post in this blog. Finally, after ages got myself some motivation to get my bum in one place and type. Today, I will be writing about an amazing trip I took a couple of months back with few of my friends to Kuldiha Forest. It is located in Odissa in the terrain of  the Nilagiri hills(Please do not confuse this with the nilgiri hills of the western ghats). We stayed in a beautiful little homestay right at the foot of the hill. The place was so secluded, that tranquility swallowed me up instantly. Who knew I could wake up 5 am in the morning and go for bird watching or climb up a hill in search for elephants or walk 8 kilometers through a tribal village. Yeah, the trip was pretty awesome! 😀
