If you have been looking for interesting winter holiday options, you could consider Odisha this year.

Billed by the state tourism department as ‘India’s Best Kept Secret’, the state has a distinct draw because of its untouched beaches, ancient Kalingan architecture, and divine spiritual experiences. 

And now, there’s one more reason to visit the state this winter.

Odisha Tourism has lined up glamping spots at destinations across the state via @Eco Retreat 2020. Expect lots of interesting activities – adventure and water sports, star gazing, cycling trails, nature trails, day itineraries and cultural evenings. 

The idea, according to the tourism department, is to ‘explore Odisha by road’ and revel in unmatched luxury camping, or glamping.

The campsites are set across the state in picturesque locations showcasing Odisha’s natural bounty – from river beds and sand bars to virgin beaches, mangrove forests and even hill stations.
