Times magazine recently released a list of the greatest places on earth in 2023. In the list, the magazine has a total of 50 extraordinary destinations to explore on earth in 2023. In this list, the magazine has included two cities from India, Ladakh, and Mayurbhanj. While Ladakh is one of the best-known travel destinations in the whole of South Asia, Mayurbhanj from Odisha is a little-known place. Here are a few interesting reasons why this small district from Odisha made it to the list of the world’s greatest places.

Mayurbhanj is known for its well-maintained flora and fauna. The place is one of the rarest regions on the planet to spot black tigers. The Simlipal National Park in Mayurbhanj, which is under the radar of the Odisha government, reopened in November 2022 for visitors. However, the number of visitors to the national park has been restricted to only 60 to safeguard the state’s delicate ecosystem.

Besides the rare black tiger, this region is also home to over 40 species of mammals, including the Asian elephants and Bengal tigers.

Visitors to the town can enjoy the ecosystem of the region on guided safaris or self-guided cycling tours. However, the city has much more to offer than just the natural gift of some rare animals.

The city also stages the famous Mayurbhanj Chhau dance festival. It is making rounds that the festival this year will be organised on a much larger scale than the previous years, given the long break brought in by the COVID-19 pandemic. These performances are especially as they combine ancient martial arts and folk dance.

While the dance competition itself is a special program, there are several other facilities provided for the viewers.

“Stunning biodiversity and interminable heritage continue through the state. In the capital Bhubaneswar, a new guided walking tour series, Odisha Walks, explores ancient cultural sites, monolithic rock edicts, and remarkable temple architecture. Later this year, the Pangi Forest Reserve in Jeypore, home to the eponymous Jeypore ground gecko, is opening a new trekking trail up the 4,600 ft. Nakti Dangar hill,” it mentions.
