The site of one of the most fabulous vistas of river and forest, the Satkosia Gorge where the great Mahanadi river crashes with monumental force is an enervating, if dizzying, experiance. The meandering pace of the sensuous river through 22 km of thick forest offers scenic delights of the frothing, boiling water as it wends its way through the awesome gorge is considered to be one of the most enchanting spots in the world. It is an idealplace for white water rafting and other adventure sports. Located in these wonderous surroundings is the Gharial Sanctuary where Gharial crocodiles are bred. A success story of conservation, this crocodile breeding farm is a must for all wildlife enthusiasts.
