MANGALAJODI : The Bird watcher’s Paradise

An Invitation to the BIRD LOVERS…

Mangalajodi House Boat

MANGALAJODI is a beautiful village located on the banks of the CHILIKA Lake which was earlier known as Poachers Village but now is a protectors village due to their tireless efforts in saving Mangalajodi wetland for more than 10 years now. Community effort ( K7 Holidays thanks CPSW & Wild Orissa for their sincere effort to make it real ) and nature beauty make it an ideal spot for Eco-tourism and the real Paradise for Birdwatchers as it houses large numbers of Migratory Birds. The sight from the Watch Tower creates an illusion of the world famous ‘West Lake’ of China as the Picturesque view of the Horizon meeting enormous waterways. One can enjoy a hand driven country boat ride ( Motor boats are not allowed so as to give the migratory birds a peaceful and noise free environment )
