Dhenkanal rail station nearby station to Kapilash

Kapilash is in Dhenkanal district of Odisha, India. I visited there a couple of years ago. It is almost 15o Km away from Puri, one of most famous tourist destination and pilgrimage of India. My primary intention to visit this place was to avoid the crowded Sea beaches of Puri. So I started from Puri to Dhenkanal station by train and then by auto to Kapilash, 19km away from the station. As we left the station, velvety greenery spreading miles away was there to welcome. Small hills having velvety green touch was along the roadside. There is only one hotel in the middle of hills and forests and there is not any locality around 5km circle of this hotel Nirupama (approved by OTDC, Govt of Odisha). So it is a golden opportunity to those who wish love making with lusty beautiful nature in loneliness. A non ac room in the hotel costs Rs 1200 which may increase to 1500-200 for deluxe ac room. Kaplish is a hill having a very old temple of lord Shiva on the top, so it is also called 'Kailash of Odisha', remembering Kailash Himalaya as the home of Shiva. It would be a very nice experience to observe nature fro the hill top. A hired car will take you to the top (it may costs 600-800 buck for a round trip). After you have offered your prayers to the Lord, just come down to visit the mini zoo at the foothills. If you have your child with you, it would be his/her great entertainment. A science park is also there with some good basic instruments which may provide some goods science lesson to your school going child. Moreover, if you love to be in loneliness, visit this place once. A day or 2 days visit to Kapilash may reduce your high BP or sugar as nature of Kapilash would eradicate all your tension tensions by a sweep of her Orni (piece of clothe at the end) as your mother or a true girl friend does. It would costs 3000 buck for a night stay for two persons. Food is a bit costly and be aware of monkeys while on hill top.
