Simlipal Travel Guide

The Simlipal National Park is situated in the Mayurbhanj district in Orissa. It is spread over 2750 sq, kms and at an altitude of 559 meters. Simplipal derives its name from Simul, which is the silk cotton tree that grows there. Its hills, waterfalls and dense foliage hide almost 80 tigers and a number of elephants, deer and crocodiles. The Simlipal National Park is endowed with exceptional foliage and there are almost 1,000 species of flowering plants, and 94 varieties of orchids!

Twelve rivers cut across the plain area and Joranda and Barehipani waterfalls are a refreshing attraction for tourists.

Though the National Park boasts of 95 tigers at least count, it still takes a lot of luck and determination to spot a big cat. Pray you are amongst the lucky one’s!
