    Time of visit

    For visitors from colder climates, the best time for visit would be between October to March. The weather during this time is very pleasant and conducive to travel. This is also the time when millions of migratory birds make their way from the north to nest in the lakes and forests of Orissa. However, Orissa is not without attraction during the rest of the year. Barring occasional very high temperatures for a few days in the months of May-June-July, and a couple of weeks of heavy rains during the monsoons, the climate in Orissa is very much to the advantage of visitors. In fact, these so called off seasons are the best times to get fabulous deals on accommodation, local transport etc.

    Orissa has an impressive sea shore. These beaches are not as crowded as other popular beaches in India. They are very charming and can be easily accessible.
