Koraput


  Koraput

Adorned by the majestic Deomali Mountain, Koraput is most fascinating manifestation of creation with her undulating meadows, roaring rapids, whispering forest and terraced valleys. She offers a splendid blending of natural beauty and ethnic treasure with sublime sense deeply interfused. Spreadover rural tranquility and great forest lands, sprawling grass lands and valleys leading up to verdant hills makes it cradle of nature. The song of gurgling brook with melodious call of cuckoo and fragrance of wildlflower echoes nature’s own eternal symphony.

Situated at 2,900 ft. above sea level Koraput, with her golden autumn and misty mornings of the monsoon months, painted spring and slumbering summer provides varieties of living. The elevating ghat roads spirally ascending the lofty hills and decending the steep valleys with blind curves make a journey thrilling. Railway passing through tunnels piercing the heart of mountains, winding their way and encircling the green hills touching different picturesque spots enroute brings heaven to earth. In Koraput you realize what Wordsworth must have meant when he talked of man's communication with nature.
