As one reaches the perfect clearing in the jungle, leopards can be seen licking themselves clean on extended branches of trees, while elephants and deers forage the ground. Jungle Fowl and monkeys are common sight there.
After visit Kuldiha Forest we will go to the Devkund.
Devkund Water Fall a Beautiful Picnic Spot , which is a part of the Udala division of Similipal Forest Range can be visited via Nilagiri from Panchlingeswar. This dense forest surrounded with hills. The lake formed by a waterfall jumping from a height of 50ft to the Devkund. There are four other falls too and each of them makes a Kund or lake so there are five Kunds in total; and that explains the name—Pancha Kunda (Place of five lakes). Climbing up more than 100 steps from Devkund, at the source of the river, there is the temple of Devi Ambika Mata (Durga temple), which is worth seeing. Pujas are still performed in the temple built by the kings of Mayurbhanj in 1940. The chirping sound of known and unknown birds, the multi-coloured butterflies add to the charm of Devkund.

Unesco World Heritage Site, Bhitarkanika is a Hot-spot of Biodiversity. It’s home to largetst population of salt water crocodile in India. The land of lush green mangroves, migrating birds and turtles, the menacing estuarine crocodiles, meandering water courses, tranquil surrounding intercepted by the chirping of birds and the ever embracing nature, entrails visitors from near and far off places to flock these unique places of tourist importance.
This winter, the total number of crocodiles stands at 1,610, which is 38 more than last year. Out of 1,610 crocodiles, 1,485 are inside the sanctuary and 125 live on the fringes.

Early morning we will visit to the Chandipur Sea Beach.
Watching the sea vanish right in front of your eyes and then observing its return is a very rare site. And to add more to this hide and seek of water, the Casuarina trees and creeper sand dunes seem to be swaying on a melodious musical note.
Chandipur, where Jatin Chandra Mukherjee (popularly known as Bagha Jatin) was shot twice during his encounter with the British force. But he swam across the river and managed to escape to Barabati where a doctor along with six attendants operated on Jatin to take out the bullets. After a while, Jatin managed to reach the hideout at Chashakhanda village where the freedom fighters used to store ammunition. Unable to find the door key, he could not open the storeroom. Exhausted Jatin fell unconscious due to excessive bleeding. Later police reached the spot and got him admitted to a hospital at Barabati. Bagha Jatin was put under detention in Dhyari jail.
