Daringbadi

Daringbadi is a beautiful hill station situated in Kandhamal district of Odisha. It is about 100 km from Phulbani and 50 kms Baliguda. It is said to be the Kashmir of Odisha. Infact it is the only place in Odisha where snowfall occurs. It is situated at a height of 3000 ft above sea level. Daringbadi is surrounded by beautiful valleys, pine forests and coffee plantations. It also has thick rainforests with wild animals. It is an ideal resort for summer season. But Daringbadi has no real tourist infrastructure and moreover all foreign tourists are stuck in Puri, thus, missing the beautiful valleys and natural elegance of this place. Daringbadi is at a distance of 211 km from the state capital, Bhubaneswar. The nearest railway station is at Berhampur (127 km).
