It is in Odisha / Orissa, precisely its nearest railway station is Balasore which is more or less on Bengal/ Orissa border. You can check also to your nearest Orissa Tourism Development Corporation in Mumbai for details.
We are planning to stay at gupti panthika niwas overnight during last week of dec and will start our journey to this park early morning. Will one day be enough to cover the everything and also atleast one sea beach over here ? Can you also please let me charges per head for this day tour?
