We stayed in Satkosia Tiger Reserve, Badmul for a day. Amazing place to stay on Mahanadi river banks. It's a government property so the maintenance is not so great.

The view of the gorge inside the reserve is unexplainable, it only can be experienced. Spend some time silently on the bank of the river Mahanadi passing through the mountains and I bet the experience will be something out of the world.

It's not the right time. We visited in December and Mahanadi river was almost dry so imagine how the situation would be in summer. Also the property is not maintained well.
