  1. Day 01 CALCUTTA (KOLKATA)

    Dinner. Reception at the airport, transfer to the hotel and visit of this contradictory and crazy city, very elegant and miserable, exotic and snobby, chaotic and charming, passionate and pure.

  2. Day 02 CALCUTTA / BHUBNESHWAR / PURI

    Half board. Time to dispose until transfer to the airport and flight to Bhubneshwar; from here continue by land to Puri (56 km, 1 hour and about thirty), one of the four sacred cities of India, home of the god Jagannath.

  3. Day 03 PURI / KONARK / PURI (31 km, about 1 hour)

    Half board. Excursion to nearby Konark, where the gigantic temple of the sun god and “pagoda near” dominates, Orissa’s impressive architectural masterpiece: amazing figures of elephants and the seven horses that symbolize the planets and the twenty-four huge wheels that drive the big chariot Surya. At the end of the immersive visit back to Puri.

  4. Day 04 PURI / BHUBNASHWAR (56 km, about 1 hour and 30 minutes)

    Half board. Spend time at the ancient Bhubneshwar, the capital of Orissa and a pilgrimage center, known as the “city of the temple”. Among the more than 600, visit of the great Lingaraj Mandir, whose interior is forbidden to non-Hindu, of the small Mukteswar from the rich sculptures depicted budhhist elements, jain and hindu, of the refined Rajarani, with intricate designs of flowers, animals and human figures. Continuation with the caves of Khandagiri and Udayagiri decorated with fine rock carvings and beautiful panoramic views.

  5. Day 05 BHUBNESHWAR / TAPTAPANI (230 km, about 5 hours and 30)

    Half board. Stop at the Chilika logo, the “sameraldi carpet” from the many isolated and many migratory birds, an area of great, uncontaminated beauty. Continue to Taptapani, a quiet place characterized by hot springs.

  6. Day 06 TAPTAPANI / RAYAGDA (160 km, about 4 hours)

    Half board. Moving to Rayagada: landscaping the entire area is an intricate and fascinating labyrinth of hills and valleys, peaks and forests, but the greatest attraction is the Saora tribes most concentrated in the Ganjam district. The ethnologists define the Orissa as a sort of living anthropological encyclopedia due to the particular concentration of ethnic minorities favored by the configuration of the territory: 62 ethnicities within the state, generally devoted to barter, of animist worship (religion with ritual compliments and tabu where the mother earth is loved, the sun god and an infinite number of tutelary gods and spirits), with an economy based on agriculture. Of particular interest is the weekly saora market held every Monday.

  7. Day 07 RAYAGDA

    Half board. Full day dedicated to the discovery of the primitive Kutia Kondh tribes, previously known for human sacrifice, characterized by a particular passion for music, rituals and dances.

    On a weekly basis, their exchange of goods takes place on Tuesday.

  8. Day 08 RAYAGDA / JEYPORE (40 km, about hour)

    Half board. Excursion to Chatikona, area of the Dhongria Kondh ethnic group, whose tribal market is held every Wednesday, and continuation to Jeypore, area of the Paraja tribe with many totems.

  9. Day 09 VISHAKHAPATANAM

    Half board. First stop to discover Mundiguda and the famous Bonda community, called “the naked people”, followed by the Gadabba villages with their typical costume and silver ornaments on their ears, necks and noses. In the afternoon transfer to Vishakhapatanam, 5 hours from Jeypore, to visit the local settlements and the Simachalam temple.

  10. Day 10 VISHAKHAPATANAM / MUMBAI

    Breakfast and transfer to the airport in time for the flight to Mumbai to connect your flight for onward destination.
