Things To do in Rayagada


Chatikona, a small tribal village located about 40 kilometers north of Rayagada in Odisha, is a hidden gem surrounded by the picturesque Niyamgiri hills. This village offers visitors a glimpse of the Dongria Kondh tribal culture with its vibrant marketplaces showcasing traditional arts and handicrafts. The stunning Chatikona Falls, set amidst lush greenery, is a major draw for tourists and picnickers. Additionally, the Shiva temple near the falls attracts pilgrims, especially during the festive period of Shivratri. While Chatikona is a captivating destination throughout the year, it is advisable to avoid visiting during the rainy season and Shivratri month due to congestion. Accessing Chatikona is convenient, with state transport buses, taxis, and trains connecting to the nearby Bissamcuttack railway station.
