Truly Tribal Tour
"Truly Tribal" is a journey that takes you through the green corridors of 'Dandakaranya'- the Dandaka forest of Ramayana fame. The Dandakaranya belt of Southern Orissa and adjoining Chhatisgarh is an anthropological wonderland.
It is home to numerous tribal groups that belong to diverse ethnic and linguistic identities living side by side in primitive harmony from time immemorial.
The Koraput region is considered the cradle of rice cultivation- where the primitive men tried their hands in domesticating the wild paddy into cultivated paddy- thousands of years back...
