Daringbadi – Experiences, Best Resort and Tourist Places

Darigbadi is undoubtedly the coldest place of Odisha, so much so that whether there was Snowfall in Daringbadi or not has lately become the parameter of deciding if the winter was strong enough. In my eyes however, the raw natural beauty of the place is what makes it a must visit for everyone.

Perched atop 3000 ft, this quite hill station of the eastern ghats, is blessed with thick rain forest, coffee garden and green valleys all around. Even the roads are as scenic as they can get. Meandering through a think cover of green, with hills and valeys playing hide and seek with every passing kilometre, one can only praise the person who coined the term Kashmir of Odisha, to describe this gem.
