The once powerful and mighty land of Kalinga, under the reign of the great king Ashoka, has now turned into the much unknown land of Odisha.
Odisha is rich in its untouched beauty and unexplored regions, with a variety of topography. It has a vast coastline, the biggest brackish water lake - Chilka lake, the Eastern Ghats, lagoons, gorges, snowfall at Daringibadi, and you name it!
This was another impromptu trip after a friend showed me a post by Satkosia Sand Resorts on Facebook last November (2017). This was a trip organized by a company called Detour Odisha and they were offering a 2-day return trip to the Satkosia Sand Resorts with a promise of Camping under the stars, trekking, bonfire, food, transport for a freaking unbelievable price of ₹999/person. No, I'm not kidding. I was pretty apprehensive as to what they must be offering for such a meagre sum. This was too good to be true. And I dissed the idea.
But a few days later, I was like what the heck let's just give it a go. And I booked 5 tickets for me and my friends.
