Satkosia Cruise Tour
Satkosia (meaning seven kosas or 14 miles) is an absolute delight for nature lovers. It is home to two of the most endangered species of crocodiles—the Mugger and Gharial. And, among the endangered birds species, Indian Skimmers are sighted here in good quantity. Thanks to Odisha Tourism’s efforts, recently it has turned out to be a popular tourist circuit for landscape photographers, wildlife enthusiasts & general tourists. It can be approached from various sides like Angul, Nayagarh (Badmul), Boudh & Cuttack (Narasinghpur) side. The main attraction is the river cruise in the mighty & magnificent Mahanadi & enjoying the breathtaking view of the enigmatic Satkosia Gorge.
