About The Tour

Mangalajodi, in coastal Odisha, is a quaint village located along the northern edge of renowned Chilika Lake. Being at the banks of Chilika Lake, the village plays host to thousands of migratory bird every winter. From October to February, the wetlands around the village become overwhelmed and sometimes even over-crowded with migratory avifauna which have completed their arduous winter migration from Caspian sea, Lake Baikal, Russia, parts of Kazakhstan and even Himalayas. The topography of the birding area is largely a brackish water lagoon which can be navigated only using boats along several channels through reed beds.

The proposed tour aims to expose participants to not only the excellent diversity of the wetlands but also to the outstanding photography opportunities.
