Yes I rediscovered myself and next is your turn, come and rejuvenate yourself with the beauty of nature around us. Mangalajodi is a small village of fishermen's near Khurda, Orissa.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Manash Chakrabort shares, “famous as a stopover destination for Sandakphu trekkers. But, now-a-days it's been catching up with the bird photographers and nature lovers for its amazing beauty and serene nature. A hamlet with inhabitants of approximately 20-30 people having cattle farming as main occupation and few of them earns a little as they arrange home stays for trekkers and tourists. During winter the place is mostly covered with snow and in other seasons temperature is quite low here. At an altitude of 2950 m, Tumling is a future hot spot for mountain, nature and wildlife enthusiasts. One can check the following links for a better idea.” Read Full Review
