Owing to constraints of time, could not venture further. I'm told there is a lot to see in Koraput and Bastar.
You must have enjoyed that trip. I'm sure there are lots to see in those areas.

Certainly--memories of the trip still linger on. I've lived the first 2 decades of my life in Orissa and there are some splendid places to visit---like Taptapani sulphur springs on the forested hills near Berhampur, and Tikarpara on the banks of the Mahanadi near Angul. Not many seem to have travelled to Taptapani, though someone recently posted fab pics of Tikarpara and Satkosia gorge on this forum.

I visited Taptapani during 2002. While the OTDC Panthashala at Taptapani is a splendid place to stay amidst the forests, the sulpher springs of Taptapani is not that well maintained. It would have been great, if the bathing ghats were clean and hygenic. Its probably because of the lack of tourists that the authorities do not feel the urge to put in much effort around the springs.
