Mangalajodi is the one of the best birding spots on Chilika Lagoon. There are good guides available, who can arrange the entire trip including stay. Few Eco-Toursim centers have come up in Manglajodi.

Best period is Dec-Feb, because more chance of viewing variety of birds and as there is no a.c accommodation. Next day we went to Vetnoi where we... More

December - January is the best time to visit this place. Before going there it is better to have knowledge about migrated birds. Apart from watching birds ,food is excellent at Manglajodi Eco Tourism.

It was a truly a blessing in disguise that we were advised to go to Mangalajodi for the ultimate birding experience. The approximately 1.5 hour drive from Puri was good. After a while, lush green fields and wetlands of all sizes blanket the entire area. The contact person at the Mangalajodi birding office, Ms. Reena was very very helpful in... More
