Tikarapada Wildlife Sanctuary

Tikarapada (Odia: ଟିକାରପଡ଼ା), one of the famous wildlife Sanctuary in Odisha. It is 60 km away from the Anugul district headquarters and 200 km from Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha. It is famous for the Gharial Crocodile Sanctuary, which is situated on the bank of River Mahanadi. Wildlife lovers can watch tiger, leopard, elephant, gaur, sambar, spotted deer, mouse deer, nilgai, four-horned antelope and sloth bear. Wild dogs used to be sighted often. Reptiles seen include the Gharial, mugger crocodile, freshwater turtle. Poisonous and non-poisonous snakes can be sighted. The site is popular as a trekking hotspot. Tikarapada is also famous for the Satakoshia George of river Mahanadi, and its lush green forest.

Visitors would get chances to caress the untainted form of nature at Tikarapada. Sometimes thunderous and sometimes calm river Mahanadi renders the opportunity for fish angling or to motor-boat or river rafting across it.
