Boating to start this october in Mahanadi Satkosia Gorge for Travellers

Satkosia Odisha Bhubaneswar buzz 1

The Satkosia Tiger Reserve authorities have decided to start the facility with a two-pronged aim — to woo tourists as well as provide employment to fishermen who have been deprived of an income after a ban was imposed on fishing in the gorge.

Boating was not a part of eco-tourism in Satkosia as a restriction had been imposed on it to maintain the serenity of the gorge, which is home to the endangered muggers and gharials. But recently, the Satkosia authorities sent a proposal to the government to introduce boating to help fishermen, who have been debarred from fishing, to eke out a living out of their engagement in boating service.
