How to reach Mangalajodi : Unfortunately there is no public transport to this place. You can opt a private or Ola/uber outstation cabs from Bhubaneswar to visit this place . Alternatively, you can choose to stay at OTDC Puri and book OTDC cab to this place. It will cost you from INR 1500-3000 for both to and fro journey.
Boat Ride : From 2017 Eco tourism of Odisha has overtaken the ferries that take you around the wetland and they cost you INR 1200 for the entire boat with a guide and a binocular. The boats can accommodate only maximum of 5 people.
Where to eat : There aren't any food outlets available at the site but you have many roadside dhabas on the highway. Don't give a second thought if you want to eat; the food is extremely delicious.
Must try : Prawns!! You would aweeedd by the taste of prawns from coastal and wetland area in Odisha. They have an entirely different taste than we have in mainland here.
Tip : Try to keep Bhubaneswar your base and take Ola/uber outstation rides to travel. It will cost you less that the private tour operators. We booked uber oustation from Bhubaneswar to Puri via Pipli, Raghurapur and Temples in bhubaneshwar and it costed us just 1600 INR.
