Things to Do

Boating in the Creeks

Bhitarkanika Park is essentially an island surrounded by water and swampy areas, with a number of rivers that crisscross through its entire area. Naturally, one of the best ways to go sightseeing is on boats available in different areas of the park, which are all licensed by the Forest Department. Prior booking is required if you plan to hire an entire private boat for a day tour etc.


Nature Trek

Bhitarkanika is one of those unique sanctuaries where trekking is a relatively more common activity to pursue compared to other wildlife reserves. This is because you won’t find any carnivorous or dangerous animals in the wild here and while hiking through the dense greens, you can make the most out of the natural beauty of this park and experience it on a personal level. Make sure to keep away from river banks though; crocodiles are abundant in this region. It is also advisable to always travel with a guide even if you are a seasoned trekker.

Watch the Nesting of Olive Ridley Turtles

The Gahirmatha Marine Sanctuary is situated to the east of Bhitarkanika National Park and separates the mangroves from the Bay of Bengal. The only marine wildlife reserve in the country, Gahirmatha is most well-known for the massive influx of the endangered Olive Ridley Turtles during the mating and nesting season that occurs sometime around January and February. The eggs hatch a couple months later and hundreds of baby turtles rush towards the ocean, creating a mesmerising spectacle.
