Such versatile geography makes Daringbadi a dream destination. Your Daringbadi Odisha tour plan would be incomplete without visiting this beautiful river.

The mountains and the valley form different colours of nature and the colourful sky at the time of sunset creates memserising views from the hill top. Though in our trip due to moisture ladder clouds and the rain the sunset was not so clear we took beautiful memories of the stunning views of the landscape.

This is the best romantic place I have ever been to in Daringbadi. Rapids of the baitarani river crushing into the rocks and creating streams is a much pleasant site. Surrounded by eastern ghats all around this tourist spot is only 10 kms from the main town and can be accessible from a 2km diversion from the main state highway. A mesmerising place for couple this spot provides stunning views of ths river that gushes down through the rocks of the eastern ghats.
If people are coming to Daringbadi they must also explore some offbeat places around it. Likewise phulbani falls just beside the highway with excellent connectivity of roads to explore the heart of western odisha. Phulbani is a tribal district where farming is the main source of income for the local villages. Green paddy fields, excellent waterfalls ,deep gorges and dense forests with numerous flora and fauna what makes phulbani a must visit tourist destination.
