Orissa is home to largest number of tribes in India and is rich in tribal heritage. Destinations of Rayagada and Koraput are hubs for tribal heritage and visited by experiential travellers for most authentic experience.

Travellers arrive here for a peek into culture, lifestyle, practices, celebrations, sights and sounds of a tribal community. The tribal areas are remote and still practice barter system especially during weekly markets. 

The tribalwear and their ornaments are of special attractions for travellers and taking photographs with the tribals is a popular with all travellers. The tribal craft items are an attraction for souvenirs. 

The Tribal areas are part of ever green forest where winds of modernisation is catching up. Even then enough authentic elements exist for travellers to arrive, spend a few days and return with once in a lifetime experience.

The Tribal areas of Orissa combine well with tribal areas of Chhattisgarh such as Jagadalpur (Bastar) for a comprehensive tribal heritage itinerary.
