Orissa is rightly known for its magnificent temples notably the Sun Temple at Konark and the Jagannath temple at Puri and for its carfare. However, Orissa is very much a rural state with over sixty tribal groups living in the hills to the south of the capital near the coastal plain, some of whom have remained untouched by modern civilization. This is a fascinating area to explore, giving an insight into a culture which is so different from the rest of India. Music and dance form an important part of tribal life and artistic skills are expressed through tattooing and painting their bodies, in their weaving and decorating their homes with wall paintings. You will be accompanied by a local guide on the tribal tour and please also notes that accommodation is limited and basic. It is important to plan an itinerary to coincide with some of the various market days and it should also be mentioned photography is prohibited in the villages of the Bonda and Khood tribes. Bhubaneshwar is connected by air to Calcutta, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Nagpur.
