11 april 2018 we are 6 friends started our journey on my two wheeler from Kolkata Barrackpore,
At 6 am I leave my home and headed for Dunlop dakhineswar more, there is our common meet point my other friends are waiting for me and after reached we took NH6 (kolkata - mumbai highway) 80kms after at Kolaghat we took breakfast then again starts riding towards to Kharagpur, there was a intersection before Kharagpur 1 highway is for Oddisha,Chennai and 1 is for Nagpur,Mumbai, we took oddisha one then after reaching BELDA we took right through a village, the Red soil roads looks awesome, the tyres covered with red dirt, after 2 or 3 km we reached Kurumbera Fort (Check it on Google about Kurumbera fort).
After sometime exploring the fort we were leave the place and go for Baripada, Baripada is nearest town of Simlipal national park. So the we are used google maps two wheeler mode and that was our a stupidity work, because two wheeler mode gives us most shortcurt road but also worst roads, so same thing happened with us, there was bad roads with mud,constructed roads etc. Anyways after sometime we had crossed a large river called Mayurakhi river, but it was waterless, and then the WEST BENGAL border ends ODDISHA starts, sign board's language was changed, people was changed, and thats the beauty of India, when you cross a state you will arrive a new world.
After a long 260 kms of journey at 2.30 pm we reached at Baripada hotel Ambika, rent was cheap enough only 565/-, we took lunch from hotel's restaurant, about 110 rupees then explored surrounding at afternoon and at night we go for Dinner, at a different restaurant close to the hotel, thats also cost about 110/- so the food will be available typical north and east India, and price also cheap, and Shocking was a thing that all market and resident area gone for sleep before 10.30pm only 2 restaurant was opened. And we also go for sleep
